    Help the missions with used ink cartridges
    BUSINESSES
    in Waterford have been offered free recycling of empty ink cartridges
    and mobile phones. Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (MSCs) have come up
    with a unique way to raise funds for their charitable work in
    developing countries. By arrangement with a specialised waste
    management company they can arrange to have empty ink cartridges
    collected from business premises throughout the county, and in return
    the missions will receive a donation for each cartridge collected. The
    size of donation is dependent on the type of cartridge but it varies
    from 50c to €2.
    The system is very convenient for businesses and
    totally environmental friendly. Businesses are provided with a special
    collection bin, and when they have ten cartridges, they ring or email
    the waste management company who will make the collection anywhere in
    the region. Where the usage is small, freepost envelopes are provided
    for posting the empties to the waste management company. Mobile phones
    can also be deposited for collection, and the donation for these if
    they have a battery is €3 each.
    Many businesses have a problem
    disposing of empty cartridges that are not acceptable for landfill. Fr.
    Michael O’Connell at the MSC Promotion Office at Western Road, Cork
    appealed to businesses in Waterford city and county to avail of this
    user-friendly service that will eliminate the hassle of disposing of
    such waste.
    He points out that €30 will care for an AIDS orphan in
    South Africa for one month, whilst €25 will provide a school meal for a
    poor child in Venezuela.
    Waterford businesses interested in the
    service can contact Matt Moran at 021-4545704 or email him at
    mscpromotion@ eircom.net and he will make the necessary arrangements
    with the waste management company that holds a waste collection permit.
