Geoff Cummins, Chief Executive for the Westcountry charity, bibic (British Institute for Brain Injured Children), explained: "The money raised from recycling these unwanted items will go towards our work changing the lives of children with developmental difficulties."
"Not only will the donors feel that they have gained some extra space at home they will also feel great about saving these items from going to landfill and also helping children achieve a better life."
bibic is a registered charity that receives no government funding and relies on support and donations to provide the life-changing help needed by many children and their families.
The charity helps children and young people aged from six months to 18-years-old with conditions affecting their social, communication and learning abilities to achieve their potential for a happier and more fulfilled life.
These illnesses include developmental conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome and brain injury.
The charity has a national assessment centre in Somerset and families from all over the Westcountry use this. It also offers support to families in their own homes. Its therapists work closely with families to create a therapy programme, which provides them with the skills and strategies to support their child or children.
The charity is able to recycle old mobile phones, MP3 players, CDs, DVDs, empty printer cartridges and batteries, and requests people send their items for recycling. bibic also offers a door-to-door bag collection for unwanted clothes, shoes, bric-a-brac and furniture in the Westcountry.
