WE DON'T WANT YOUR MONEY - BUT WE WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR WASTE

Thank you for taking the time to read this information on CHAS and our fundraising recycling initiative.  Our scheme involves the collection and recycling of Fax, laser and Inkjet cartridges from your office printers.  For every recyclable cartridge collected CHAS receive a cash donation.

THE CHARITY

The Children's Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) was set up in 1992 by families of children with a progressive terminal illness.  they were concerned that Scotland had no Children's Hospice, forcing them to make long journeys to England for care and support.  Thanks to a massive fundraising campaign backed by the Daily Record and the generosity of people throughout Scotland, Rachel house was built and opened to families early in 1996.  

HOW YOU CAN PLAY YOUR PART

Simply keep every empty cartridge generated within your organisation, Inform your staff not to bin empty cartridges, but to save them for CHAS.  We are happy to provide collection sacks or boxes for larger laser cartridges and smaller boxes or Freepost envelopes for Inkjet Cartridges; these are often used in Deskjet Colour printers and fax machines eg; HP, Cannon, Lexmark etc.  when you have six or more cartridges for collection simply call 0845 30 20 10 to arrange a free uplift, there is NO CHARGE for this service.

WHO'S ALREADY PLAYING?

Over 3,000 companies throughout Scotland are now involved in the initiative eg; Bank of Scotland, Royal Scottish assurance, Atlantic Telecom, BT, Lloyds TSB, Shell, Standard Life, Halifax, Kwik Fit, the list goes on - We'd dearly like to welcome your company onto that list.
