Jewellery, bank note and gadget recycling

Have you got some unwanted or broken jewellery or gadgets lying around at home? Why not recycle them for the Greyhound Trust! Our recycling partner, Recycling for Good Causes, will take any old or unwanted jewellery or gadgets (e.g. mobile phones, Sat Navs and handheld gaming devices), regardless of condition or value and turn them into a donation for the Trust! They are also able to recycle old or new foreign & UK banknotes, so if you've got some old leftover holiday currency, this can also be turned into a a donation to help our hounds.

Recycle 4 Charity

Recycle your inkjet cartridges and mobile phones to raise money for the Trust and protect the environment. It's so easy, you just need to select the Trust and register online. You can order freepost bags to return your items in, or even arrange for a box of wanted items to be collected, free of charge! You can even monitor your account to see how much you've raised and each quarter an automatic payment will be made to your chosen cause.

Please note that due to Royal Mail's policy changes Recycle4Charity can no longer accept mobile phones in freepost bags. Mobiles sent in this way may incur a surcharge and therefore will not raise a donation. For more information on how to send in mobile phones and a full list of acceptable ink cartridges please visit Recycle4Charity 

Give a Car

Do you own a vehicle that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating it to us through Giveacar!

Giveacar raises money for UK charities by scrapping and selling old cars. They provide a nationwide FREE service which:

  • Arranges the collection of the vehicle from your home for FREE; and
  • Recycles it at an authorised facility or sends it to auction (depending on its age and condition).

Scrap donations raise about £55 for the charity (depending on the price of metal) while auction cars can raise much more.

To arrange donation of a car, visit or call 020 7736 4242, quoting the Retired Greyhound Trust as your preferred charity.

Recycling your inkjet cartridges

Do you have empty inkjet cartridges that you could recycle?  The Recycling Factory will make a donation for each eligible cartridge that you recycle for the Trust.  Disposing of your old ink cartridges this way is not only environmentally friendly, but also benefits the many greyhounds looking for homes at our branches around the UK.

Visit to download a freepost label and to check if your cartridge is eligible for recycling.
