FundingFactory Recycling Program Pays Colleges to Collect E-Waste

FundingFactory, a recycling fundraiser program of Clover Technologies Group, has launched an electronic waste recycling program called Collected that pays colleges and universities cash or rewards in exchange for e-waste.

The program collects used inkjet and toner printer cartridges, cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras and laptops from many higher institutions.  Participants can track how these e-wastes are reused and recycled. Reuse and recycle rates, raw materials breakdown, carbon emission offsets, shipments and earnings can be found on,  the website for Clover’s Collected recycling program.

Schools that have registered will be offered benefits without cost, including “free freight or UPS ground shipping, collection bins and shipping boxes, and support and customizable promotional materials”.

According to FundingFactory, it and its partners have provided more than $35 million in funding to US schools and nonprofits since its foundation in 1998, and saved over 64 million pounds of waste from landfills.
