Other organizations in my area are already participating. Should I sign up?

Is there a time limit to your fundraising by recycling program?
No, there is no expiration or deadline associated with FundingFactory’s program.

Do you provide promotional materials?
Participants receive a Jump-start Guide containing all the materials needed to get started. You’ll find free printable shipping labels and promotional resources, including posters, downloadable flyers, displays, letter templates, and other materials to kick off your new fundraising-thru-recycling program when you log in to your account.

Is there a risk associated with handling printer cartridges?
Printer cartridges are not considered toxic and do not pose a threat. The ink in them is no more harmful than the ink in a ballpoint pen.
