Winterville United Methodist Church Recycles!

Save Aluminum Cans - Please drop them off outside the fellowship hall in plastic bags. All proceeds go directly into the Building Fund.

Children & Youth Fundraiser - We have an ongoing cell phone and inkjet cartridge recycling fundraising drive to benefit our Children & Youth programs. There’s nothing to buy. We are simply asking everyone to safeguard the environment by donating their old digital cell phones and used printer ink cartridges. The tax-deductible cell phones and ink cartridge donations will be recycled in accordance with EPA regulations or refurbished and sold.

Other qualifying items:

  Inkjet Cartridges 

  • Only digital phones will be accepted (no walkie-talkies, two-way radios, pagers, PDA’s, cordless home phones, mock display units, analog phones, or “bag” phones).  No manuals or accessories will be accepted.  Damaged phones are OK.
  • Printer ink cartridges must not be damaged; I.e. cartridge case, circuitry, and print head must not be broken.  Use zip lock bags to individually wrap each cartridge. Laser & toner cartridges are also now accepted.

 We also accept the additional items for recycling:

  • cellphones
  • radar detectors (Escort, Beltronics, Cobra)
  • laptop computers
  • MP3 players (Microsoft Zune, Creative & Sandisk)
  • digital cameras, digital video cameras, digital frames
  • electronic book readers (Kindle, Sony)
  • GPS devices (Garmin, Mio, Magellan, TomTom)
  • Portable DVD players
  • Handheld game systems
  • Gold, Silver & Platinum Jewelry (even broken jewelry)

Download a printable poster to attach to a box, which can be placed in your office or other places of employment, school, church, etc. for collecting cell phones and ink cartridges.  Once filled or have at least 20 cartridges, please deliver it to the office at Winterville UMC.

100% of the proceeds will go toward our mission projects.  A receipt for tax-deductible purposes will be provided for those who request one.  Please email requests for a receipt, or if you have any questions.
