Recycle used printer ink cartridges and used cell phones and help raise money for MFR in the process
MFR has begun a campaign with Planet Green to collect and recycle used printer cartridges and cell phones to recycle and raise money for disaster relief. If you would like to help by collecting these items at your home, school or office then please send an email with your full name and mailing address (where you want the materials to go) to Whitney@musicforrelief.org and indicate in the email that you want to recycle used cell phones and ink cartridges for MFR. MFR will send you a box to collect used cell phones and ink cartridges, when the box is full (at least 20 phones or cartridges), send it back using the pre-paid postage label and MFR will receive a donation.
Include the MFR code (1975) on the postage label when you return it so that MFR gets credit. Please email Whitney@musicforrelief.org with any questions.
