Recycling schemes

Recycle mobile phones, printer cartridges and jewellery in aid of NRAS

Do you have old or broken mobile phones lying around your house, empty printer cartridges, odd earrings and broken bracelets? Why not recycle them and help us raise some much needed funds to support people with rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis at the same time? Having a clear out can make a big difference!

Mobile Phones and Printer Cartridges

 To request your freepost recycling envelopes for mobile phones and ink cartridges please follow the steps below:

1. Follow the link to the 'register' page by clicking here

2. Type the charity you wish you donate to (NRAS)

3. Type your details and click 'next', leave company name blank if you are not a company, and fill your home address details here

4.  Select quantity of boxes and/or envelopes that you would like and click 'register'

(please note when sending mobile phones you will need to request a box as these cannot be posted using a recycling envelope, there is a minimum pledge of 25 phones so why not get family and friends to donate too and send several phones back at any one time) 

The main printer cartridges that can be recycled are Dell, Canon, Lexmark and Hewlett-Packard inkjets, but for a full list please click here. Put the items you would like to recycle in the envelopes, seal and pop in the post.

Unwanted and Broken Jewellery


 You can help us to raise money by sending your recycling donation for free. We can recycle: 


  • Any jewellery – gold, silver, costume jewellery, watches, broken and damaged items (like odd earrings, snapped chains or items with missing stones). 
  • Any unwanted banknotes – old and new, UK and foreign banknotes, including all the pre Euro notes that are now worthless to you. 

If you would like to send your jewellery and banknote recycling to us, simply wrap, pack, print label and send!  Use your own envelope or jiffy bag (No bigger than A5 in size) and post free of charge by printing out the freepost label below and attaching to your envelope.
