We are delighted to announce that we are now running a Recycling campaign! We are encouraging our wonderful staff, volunteers and supporters, just like you, to get involved and help raise vital funds for the Hospice all whilst helping the environment as well!

As we are all now spending a lot more time at home than ever before, now is the time to be aware of the waste we are producing and what items we have around our homes that can be recycled!

We will be launching this new campaign during Recycling Week which takes place from 21st – 27th September! During this week we will be letting you know where you can drop off your recyclable items to help raise funds for the Hospice.

Take a look at our recycling programmes below and learn how your recycling efforts can not only have an environmental benefit, but can also make a big difference to Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice when we need your help the most!



Our Recycling Programmes:

  • Ink Cartridges

    Discovering that your ink cartridges are empty can be frustrating; however, did you know that your empty cartridges could help raise important funds for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice?

    We have set up our new ink cartridge recycling campaign so that we can turn your old ink cartridges into cash donations for the Hospice!

    It couldn’t be easier!

    During National Recycling Week from 21st – 27th September we will be launching this new campaign and will be setting up a donation station outside our Day Hospice reception. Here, you will be able to drop off your empty ink cartridges.

    We can only accept and recycle the following brands:

    • HP
    • Dell
    • Canon
    • Kodak
    *all other brands can be recycled but will not have a donation value to the Hospice*


    Every year in the UK, around 45 million printer cartridges end up in landfill taking an estimated 1000 years to decompose.

    You can make a difference to our planet as well as your local hospice and the people who need our care and support the most by recycling today!

    £1 will be donated from each ink cartridge we can recycle! Imagine the difference you can make if you join this programme…

  • Mobile Phones

    Research shows that, in total, UK residents have 6.86 billion unused mobile phones in their households and that 47.8% of people have at least one unused mobile phone in their home and choose to do nothing with it.

    Are you one of these people and would like to do something with your old phone?

    You can help generate crucial funds for the Hospice so that we can continue to deliver the care and support to those living with life-limiting illness who need it most!


    If you have an unused phone then we would love to hear from you!


    During National Recycling Week we will be launching this new campaign and will be setting up a donation station outside our Day Hospice reception. Here, you will be able to drop off your old mobile phones and we will then send them off to be evaluated and recycled.


    Why recycle your mobile phone?

    • You will be saving the planet in a safe and environmentally friendly way
    • You will be saving mobile phones from going to landfill and preventing the carbon emissions associated with producing new phones
    • Throwing your phone away means it goes to landfill, where dangerous chemicals can pollute land, air and water
    • You will be raising funds for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice that are very much needed during these difficult and very challenging times
    • You will have that special feeling of knowing that your kind and generous donation will make such a big difference to the lives of so many
