this fundraiser is similar to that of the other one, in that both revolve on recycling cartridges. just wanted to provide another alternative for those in texas. hope it could be of help.

Thanks Eileen_neave,

This program looks like a good one, in fact a quick comparison shows that if certain cartridges are more common around your collection area you will or can earn more money with this program.

God Bless,

your welcome

ill share something with you. i had at first signed up with recylefund, but as i was looking through the net i discovered the best way to work this. you can sign up with other programs, because some do not accept certain cartridges, and some do. some give you $1 for each item you send in, and another might give you $2 or less, but it is a way that you can get more.

I looked through it, and it looks like a really good idea. Most people throw their cartridges away, and I'm planning on presenting this to the whole church to see if they keep their cartridges, and as well as anyone else. The pathfinder's schools, neighbors, we're gonna go out and hit the streets for it!

It'll only be a few dollars at first, but hopefully it could become a steady income of sorts. Our church is small and renting a spot in a shopping center right now, and we plan to also ask everyone in the shopping center as well (in addition to the computer store across the street)

by the way... has anyone tried this before? And if you did, what time period yielded what amounts, with how many places participating?

We did a little research into it, and found ecyclegroup gives more money, and accepts more cartridges. You may want to look into this one as well. There is one kind of cartridge, not sure what it goes to, but they pay $22 for it.... I gotta find one of those! That's a Pathfinder Class A Shirt! hehe, good luck with whatever you decide to go with, and with raising your funds!

the ecycle.com site still has the best buy-back prices compared to the other printer recycle site listed at the top. You have to have at least 20 cartridges to mail back before they'll send you a shipping label. I'm going for it...

That depends on the shipping method and number of cartridges. The link I put in under another topic for Green Office Recycling pay all of the shipping themselves by sending you the boxes they want you to use and UPS prepaid lables.

I requested for a kit, the catch is we have to send atleast 20 inkjets or 10 laser-somethings, best to do is leave a "newsletter" or flyers and pas them around town to get more, faster.

That is correct, not only should you put an announcement in your local church bulliten, and send them out to other area SDA churches as well as the parents and staff of your club; you should certainly reach out to the local bank managers, grociers, and other local shops and offices that use these items and have visitors.

If a local store is willing you can use a plastic jar with a lid and lable as a recycling center their customers can bring their items to; then you can stop by periodically and collect.

God Bless,
