Preventing homelessness in Reading

Not just money

Monetary donations aren’t the only contribution that can help the homeless in Reading.

Recycle your print cartridges to raise funds

We have partnered with The Recycling Factory to raise funds through the recycling of your unwanted inkjet cartridges.

Launchpad receives up to £3.50 for every recyclable inkjet cartridge and it won’t cost you a penny. The Recycling Factory provides a freepost label for small quantities of inkjet cartridges that you want to recycle.

Simply download and print the freepost label and attach to your package/envelope of inkjet cartridges (max weight 1kg) and post it.

If you have larger volumes of inkjet cartridges to recycle, simply contact The Recycling Factory on 0800 091 0696 or email info@trf-uk.com, explaining that you wish to recycle on our behalf.

Other items

Launchpad isn’t able to accept donations of food, furniture, bedding or clothing because we have very limited storage space – but we work closely with lots of other charities in the town who welcome these items.

Please contact them directly if you can help.
