YOU CAN DONATE TO BIG CAT RESCUE AND HELP SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT
ALL AT NO COST TO YOU OR YOUR ORGANIZATION!
RECYCLE YOUR INK JET CARTRIDGES AND TONERS
Big Cat Rescue works with a recycler. You can help our environment by recycling that generates donations to Big Cat Rescue. For each item received, the vendor sends us a donation, typically from $.10 to $7.00 on inkjet cartridges & laser toners. Through the wonderful participation of many individual and business supporters, this program has generated over $50,000 to help care for the cats!
Recycling is very simple.
If you are local, just drop them off at the sanctuary any day but Thursday.
If you are not local, or prefer to collect them and easily ship them yourself (better for us, thank you!), just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your postal address. We will have our vendor send you 5 prepaid UPS labels. They can be put in a box and taken to any UPS drop off location. The box can also be given to a UPS driver when they deliver to a business.
PLEASE NOTE TWO IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS:
1) Minimum shipping quantities Minimum quantity for cartridges in a carton is 20 items or 20 pounds You may mix them, but please wrap inkjets & toners separately within the returned carton.
It is only economical for the vendor if you save up until you have a minimum of 20 cartridges or 20 pounds. Otherwise the cost exceeds the value and it does not help. If you have only a few inkjets or toners and would like to donate to BCR, they may be mailed to us at 12802 Easy Street, Tampa, FL 33625 and we’ll send them in our bulk shipments.
2) Almost all makes/models of ink cartridges & laser toners are accepted. If you send in items that are not recyclable we do not receive any funds, however recycling for the environment will help the earth!
Copier toners such as these are not recyclable:
This is a wonderful way to help the cats and save the environment at the same time at no cost to you. Thanks very much for supporting the cats in this way!
PLEASE ENCOURAGE OTHERS YOU KNOW TO PARTICIPATE AS WELL!
If you have any questions or problems, please email us at email@example.com and we’ll do our best to help. Thanks!
