Animals to benefit from recycling

Wild animals and birds across East Sussex will benefit from a mobile phone recycling project run jointly by Envirocharities and East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS).

"This is a great environmentally friendly way of recycling your mobile phone and helping nature and the environment even more and saving the lives of wildlife casualties at the same time" said WRAS's founder Trevor Weeks.

East Sussex WRAS is undertaking a collection at Tesco’s at Lottbridge Drove throughout Tuesday 7th October and are urging people to bring along their old mobile phones at the same time as doing their shopping so they can collect not just financial donations but mobile phones too.

Old mobile phones can recycled online too by visiting too.

We also have a volunteers recruitment meeting on Monday 13th October at Edgmond Evangelical Church Hall in Church Street, Eastbourne at 7.30pm where interested members of the public can come along and find out more about the work of WRAS and the volunteer opportunities available from rescuing to fundraising.

WRAS will also be doing an education display on Wednesday 29th October at Michelham Priory. "Mobile phones can be taken along to any WRAS event and handed over for us to recycle saving you any bother loging on and posting off phones etc, we can raise as little as £3 or over £100 for some phones. This is a great way to help WRAS and animals in need" said Trevor.

"Donating your old mobile will allow us to continue answering calls from the members of the public who find injured wildlife. Without this support our service could close, so please help us keep our rescue line open by donating your mobile phone to WRAS" said Trevor.
