How does the Ellie's Fund Glove Recycling Programme Work?

Ellie’s Fund is a charity fund for YBTC; using a recycling initiative to raise funds for research into brain tumours.

There are three steps for your glove end-users to follow:

STEP 1

The glove user collects together their used, uncontaminated gloves; these must be of a minimum consolidated weight of 8 kilogrammes.

What does 'uncontaminated gloves' mean?

An uncontaminated glove is a glove that doesn't have a residue of clinical waste or chemicals, including blood, bodily fluids, harsh chemicals and oil.

Water-based paints and hair dyes are generally accepted, it is best to wash the glove before sending.

If in any doubt, please contact recycling@elliesfund.com before commencing Step 1.

STEP 2

The glove user needs to parcel and weigh the gloves and email recycling@elliesfund.com with the correct weight to request a Freepost 'glove label'; once the label is received the parcel should be despatched to the pre-printed address.

STEP 3

The received gloves are checked for contaminants and sent off for recycling. Recycled gloves are made into secondary recycled goods such as benches and children's playgrounds.
