We exist to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy


Change lives and help the environment

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

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

Inkjet cartridges

Our partner Recycle4charity will send you a Freepost envelope for most of your empty inkjet cartridges (Canon, Lexmark, Dell, Neopost, HP, Samsung). Alternatively, start a collection with your family, friends, colleagues or community. Request your poster and collection box from Recycle4charity and when you have collected 25 cartridges, Recycle4charity will collect them for free!

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.

Collect everything in a strong box - there is no need to sort. When you have reached 5kg, please call Lisa Goodall 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) to:

Epilepsy Action
New Anstey House, Gate Way Drive
Leeds, 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.

Almost anything else

Our friends at GiveaCar offer a hassle-free way to scrap your old banger and you’ll be donating at least £35! They are also able to turn almost anything of working order into valuable donations. Visit them and see what you could donate.

Hi Emma,

Yes we do recycle mobiles. Simply visit www.recycle4charity.co.uk/Register/C31323 and register to get your collection envelopes and boxes sent to you for free. Or, if it's just a one-off give me a call on 0113 210 8816 and I can send you an envelope out. Thanks for thinking of recycling to help people with epilepsy.
