While you are busy making room for the new…
are you left wondering where to put the old?
CFK would like to remind you that many schools and organizations would love you to recycle those older electronics! Not only would you be helping your community, you would be saving the planet. Start the year off on a positive step and cross off those resolutions!
Cell Phones, Laser Cartridges, Laptops, eReaders, Tablets, iPads, iPods, Video Games and Consoles
Cartridges for Kids is wishing a you a very Happy and Safe New Year!
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.

July is Recycle 4 Soldiers month here, and you’re right, I’m gonna quote Uncle Sam…We want YOU to help out!
1. Go right now to your junk drawer and take out the 1, 2 or 3 retired cell phones you have sitting in there. (You can grab the chargers while you’re at it.)Put the phones into an old box and tape it up. Tape the shipping label to it, and put it in your mailbox. Or, if you’re lucky enough to know your mailman/woman personally, you could hand it to them with a smile.
And you’re done! Your cell phones will be recycled or refurbished, and the proceeds will be sent on to the soldier support organizations we work with. See below for the list.
2. Go to the Recycle 4 Soldiers enrollment page on our website. Sign up your school, church, neighborhood association, bridge club, or sports team (or any other group really, because do people still join bridge clubs?). We’ll send you all the info you need to start a year-round recycling drive to support our troops. This means you collect all the stuff we recycle and send to us on our dime. We recycle all the stuff and send the money to those non-profits listed at the bottom of the page. Everybody wins.
3. Oh, you’re already a non-profit working to support our troops? PERFECT! You can sign up to recycle also. We’ll send you customizable fliers to advertise your collection, and you can be part of a recycling team full of soldier support organizations just like you.
Stay tuned later today for some exciting info about the new iPhone!
