How it Works
Raising money should be a snap – which is why we’ve made our Think Recycle fundraising program as simple and hassle-free as possible!
How does it work? You collect electronics, we recycle them responsibly and you raise funds . You can raise funds for recycling a wide variety of electronic devices, such as:
- Cell Phones
- Inkjet Cartridges
- Toner Cartridges
- Digital Cameras

Interested in joining the Think Recycle team but don’t know where to start? Follow these 3 easy steps and you’ll be on your way in no time!
1. Register and Become a Member
Choose someone to be a Program Advocate. This person should be results-driven, enthusiastic about the environment, and eager to earn or raise ‘money, money, money, money… MONEY!’ This person will be your fearless leader, so choose carefully. You can register as a Program Advocate by completing our online registration form.
2. Collect Acceptable Products
Spread the word!... raising awareness with on-going promotion is the key to your success!
Connect with workplaces, local businesses, family, friends, students parents and your community and let them know about your program.
For schools and corporations, connect with Management, Sustainability and IT Departments and ask them what happens when they do an electronics’ refresh for cell phones, laptops and ink/toner cartridges. And then ask that it be donated to you!
Set up your Think Recycle collection in a high-traffic area and start gathering those unwanted electronics!
"But how will anyone know we are doing this fantastic fundraiser?" you may ask. Simple: we customize a Jump Start Kit to suit you and your organization with promotional postcards, posters, and social media tips, with even more available to download off our website!
3. Ship to Think Recycle!
So now you have a box of unwanted electronics. Now what? We’ve teamed up with our friends at UPS to make sure the shipping process is completely painless. Once we’ve received your shipment, it’s only a short time until you’ll know how much you’ve raised via your online account. As soon as you’ve raised $50, you can ask for your dues, at which point we’ll be able to say “your cheque is in the mail.” We like saying that, and it’s even better because it’s true!
