Donate your used printer cartridges or old cell phone to FundingFactory and help the IFOPA!

Please consider collecting used cell phones and empty printer cartridges within your company to benefit the IFOPA.

This is a simple fundraiser that helps subsidize the IFOPA's budget. The IFOPA utilizes the FundingFactory Recycling Program to recycle collected cartridges and cell phones. The program features FREE prepaid shipping labels, online accounting, and a business component that enables companies and individuals to collect cartridges and cell phones in support of our efforts.

Benefits:

  • Environmentally friendly disposal of printer cartridges and cell phones
  • Community recognition for recycling efforts
  • Continual support to the IFOPA without extra cash donations

How It Works

All laser and inkjet cartridges as well as cell phones collected through this effort are sent to FundingFactory, a company based in Erie, PA, that offers the nationwide recycling program. When the boxes arrive at FundingFactory, the items are inspected and the value for each collected item registers in our online account. The IFOPA will be able to login to its account anytime to view its returns, order more boxes or request a check for our earnings.

Please visit www.FundingFactory.com for more information about supporting the IFOPA through FundingFactory's Business Support program. If you choose to register, please identify ID number 125760 as the beneficiary organization -- that's the IFOPA.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact the IFOPA office.
