Did you know - you can help raise vital funds for the Stroke Association while recycling your old items, from ink cartridges to cars! Visit the sites below for further information.

Recycling your scrap car

Giveacar: The UK's original not-for-profit car donation service can turn your old car into cash for any UK charity. Every vehicle - even if it's just a car's scrap metal value - is worth something. Giveacar arranges free collection, then either sell your car at auction or scrap it. You can then choose to send the proceeds (minus a service fee) directly to the Stroke Association.

Scrap Car Comparison: Sometimes there comes a time when you have to sell your car for scrap or salvage. It can be a difficult time, but Scrap Car Comparison's donate a car scheme simplifies the process, arranges free-of-charge collection of the vehicle and organises a donation Stroke Association (all or part of the profit quoted).

Donate your old stamps, jewellery, foreign currency and gadgets

Recycling for Good Causes: Either post your small items or bag up a bigger quantity of items to be collected by one of their couriers.

Recycling your ink cartridges
