Recycling for Good Causes - Donate via post

You can donate all your broken and unwanted jewellery to raise money for East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS) Ltd.

If you have any gold, silver, odd earrings, broken chains, costume jewellery and watches, you can recycle them at no cost to you whilst making money for East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS) Ltd.

We can recycle:

  • Any jewellery – gold, silver, costume jewellery, watches, broken and damaged items (like odd earrings, snapped chains or items with missing stones).
  • You can donate any unwanted banknotes from ANY country of any age, so all of those obsolete pre-euro notes are a perfect start!

Our partners at Recycling for Good Causes will reuse and recycle the jewellery and Banknotes, giving the proceeds to East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS) Ltd, saving precious raw materials at the same time.

If you would like to send your jewellery and banknote recycling to us, simply use your own envelope or jiffy bag (No bigger than A5 in size) and post free of charge by printing out the freepost label below and attaching to your envelope.

*Please do not send coins or stamps to the freepost address as the postage costs will far outweigh your donation. *

You can now donate your used stamps to raise much needed funds for East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS) Ltd. All kinds of stamps are welcome, on or off paper.

Simply cut or carefully rip the postage stamp from the used envelope, being careful that you don’t damage the stamp, and once you have a collection pop them in an envelope making sure you have the correct postage to:

Pringles® Tube Recycling Programme

You can Recycle your Pringles® tubes at our Bridlington Community Hub, 2a Marshall Ave, Bridlington YO15 2DS.

You will help us to earn TerraCycle points by recycling with us! This is then converted into a donation that supports more ERVAS projects.

What happens after collections?

The empty tubes will be taken to a specialist recycling mill in West Yorkshire. Here, the tubes are fully recycled with the fibres from the recycled cartons turned into industrial tubes and cores, which are used to wrap paper, man-made fibre yarns, and metal and plastic film around for industrial applications.

Clothing Donation Programme

You can donate clothing at the Bridlington Community Hub, see flyer for details.
