Ellie's Fund recycling 


An Ellie’s Fund initiative, we turn your everyday rubbish into money for brain tumour research – the biggest cancer killer of children in the UK.

So far, we've raised a massive £65k through recycling things you use every day like empty crisp packets, baby food pouches and more.
 
All the money we raise from recycling is allocated to Ellie’s Fund and is spent on brain tumour research projects in Yorkshire.

For updated information please visit the Ellie's Fund recycling initiative Facebook page.

Please direct all recycling enquires to recycling@elliesfund.com and our team of volunteers will respond to your enquiry within five working days.

Please note that we only accept certain types of each of these items and there is a weight limit, see below for more details. 

 

Where do I send my recycling?

 
If you collect under the minimum weight for each item (click on the items above to find out what this is) recycling can be dropped off at the YBTC charity shop – No 31, Otley Road, Leeds, LS6 3AA if you're local. If you come from further afield, you can take a look at our different drop-off points throughout the UK here.

If you collect the minimum weight (click on each of the items above to find out each specific minimum weight) please email recycling@elliesfund.com to get hold of a label and send your recycling bundles directly to our sponsor to be turned into £££’s for Ellie’s Fund.

Please direct all recycling enquires to recycling@elliesfund.com and our team of volunteers will respond to your enquiry within 5 working days. 

Please note the maximum box size for all waste streams is 60x60x50cm.


What happens to our recycling?

 
We send all the recycling to a depot in the North-West of England where it is cleaned before being chipped or "extruded" into pellets. These pellets are then used to make other items, like watering cans, benches, ping-pong tables, raised flower beds and more. 

Once finished with, these items can go through the process again so that plastic is never sent to landfill.

We are paid by the weight of items we send for recycling, subject to minimum weight and strict box sizes (set by each sponsor) and have raised more than £65,000 to date!
