Pet charity People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA), is looking at National Recycle Week as a way of increasing its stock.

A spokesman told the Review: “What’s that saying about one person’s trash being someone else’s treasure?

The PDSA is appealing to the Montrose Review’s animal-loving readers to look again at old, half-forgotten items and donate them to help sick and injured pets during Recycle Week, which runs until Sunday (June 23).”

He continued: “Used stamps, spent printer cartridges, old mobile phones and foreign coins – currently gathering dust in homes and offices – can gain a new lease of life with PDSA.

“ Clothing and unwanted gifts are also welcome donations to PDSA stores nationwide.

“By recycling all of these items, the charity’s friends and supporters can help raise funds to help more pets in need of vets in your community. “

Recycling everyday items such as mobile phones and ink cartridges is a popular way for companies, schools and offices to get involved.

Holding a mobile phone amnesty could be one way to get all those redundant mobiles out of dusty boxes and off to the recycling company!

PDSA – the UK’s leading veterinary charity – receives no government funding and relies entirely on public generosity to support its charitable veterinary service.
