We exist to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy


Change lives and help the environment!

If you live in the UK, by recycling your unwanted items, you can raise vital funds to support people living with epilepsy.

The more items we receive the greater the donation. So why not invite your friends, family and colleagues or community to join a collection?

Firstly, check below to see the items we can convert with our recycle partners. Then simply follow the instructions provided to donate your items.

Inkjet cartridges and mobile phones

Our partner Recycle4charity will send you a Freepost envelope for most of your empty inkjet cartridges (Canon, Lexmark, Dell, Neopost, HP, Samsung).

Get your Freepost envelope

Starting a collection is a great way for your family, friends, colleagues or community to help raise awareness and vital funding.

Request your poster and collection box from Recycle4charity for your collection at school, work, Guides or Scouts for instance. Collect just 25 inkjet cartridges and mobile phones together and Recycle4charity will come and collect them for free!

Start your collection today

*** Update***  1st of April 2015 - Due to changes in Post Office rules regarding delivery of mobiles phones, sadly we are no longer able to accept mobile phone donations through the post. Alternatively you could start a collection, see details above.


Visit GiveaCar for a hassle-free way to scrap your old banger and you’ll be donating at least £35! 

Almost anything else!

Yes, our friends at GiveaCar are looking to convert almost anything of working order into valuable donations. Visit them and see what you could donate. 

Old, used and collectable stamps, coins and notes

Holding a collection is another great way to get your family, friends, colleagues or community involved while raising awareness and vital funding.

Donations of 5kg or more can even be collected for free!

Simply collect everything in a strong box - there is no need to sort. When you have reached 5kg, call Kath Barker on 0113 210 8822 to arrange collection.

For smaller collections, please send directly to us in a suitable envelope ensuring there is sufficient postage (ideally a large letter stamp):

Epilepsy Action
New Anstey House
Gate Way Drive
LS19 7XY

We're always grateful to recieve any donation, and we would love the chance to thank you. If you would like a thank you letter or email please make sure to include your details when sending in your stamps.
