There is now a donation box in the waiting room at both Winterton and Burton Surgeries for patients to recycle their used inkjet cartridges. For each eligible cartridge donated the charity Action for ME will receive up to £2!
M.E or CFS is a long term condition that causes persistent fatigue that doesn't go away with sleep or rest and affects everyday life. It most commonly affects the nervous and immune systems. Sometimes is it diagnosed as post viral fatigue syndrome when triggered by a viral onset. M.E. affects patients in different ways, but its impact is never insignificant. Even in its mildest form M.E. changes the lives of everyone it affects and not just their health.
Action for M.E work to fund research into the condition and provide support to patients whose worlds have been turned upside down.
In the first month, 43 cartridges have already been donated. Donating your ink cartridge’s will support their work whilst reducing waste at landfill.
*Please note laser/toner cartridges are not accepted.
