If you are looking for an easy fund raiser for your school, sports team, scout troop, library, or other nonprofit organization, you should consider taking a look at recycling fund raiser programs. Raising money by simply collecting used printer cartridges is a very simple way to help your organization come up with a little extra cash. Since Most people typically throw away their used printer cartridges it is not much of an inconvenience to convince people to simply save them and turn them in for a good cause. Printer cartridges are not considered toxic and therefore do not pose a threat to anyone handling them. Once you are able to convince the majority of your organization and possibly some of your friends and family to save all of their empty ink cartridges you can quickly accumulate some extra cash. Most recycling fund raisers will send you a complete kit with the materials you will need in order to have a successful fund raiser. You will typically receive a prepaid shipping label so you do not even have to pay for shipping the recycled ink cartridges back!
Another option for your group to earn some money is to collect old cell phones. Recycling cell phones can be very beneficial to your organization’s fund raiser efforts. It is very easy to have members of your team/group/organization round up all of their old cell phones. While many phones may only bring a few dollars each, newer phones such as iPhones can quickly make you hundreds of dollars. At the time of this post for example, recycling an original iPhone currently earns you roughly $20.00 and iphone 3Gs $60.00 per phone! A few smart phones mixed with a decent collection of older phones can quickly help you meet your fund raiser goals by earning your organization hundreds or even thousands of dollars. All of this by simply rounding up old cell phones that are not even being used now! There are many people out there who simply stick their old phones in a drawer somewhere and never think about them again. Why not sign your organization up for a recycling fund raiser program and help them make more money!
