Old Phones and Ink Cartridges Recycled

As part of the UK’s annual Recycle Week, the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNNAAS) has urged people in Cumbria, UK to donate unused mobile phones and ink cartridges to raise funds for their aircraft, reported North West Evening Mail.

John Ballan, Team Manager at GNAAS Trading Company, said: “This is a great way for people to turn old goods into life-saving support. Many of us have old mobiles lying at the back of our drawers and we ask that you please don’t throw them away. Millions of phones end up in landfill each year, but if they are recycled, it eliminates this threat to the planet’s resources and helps to keep the aircraft flying.” He added, “We saw an increase in both cartridges and phones donated to the charity during Recycle Week and all the funds raised will go directly towards keeping our helicopters up in the air.”

It’s said that GNAAS needs to raise around £4.5m (US$ 7.08million) every year to fund the service that covers the North East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria.
