Over $306,000 Raised For Local Charities

Recycle for a Reason - Donation Chart

Recycle for a Reason is Garvey's Office Products toner and electronics recycling program. Each quarter, we collect used toner cartridges, flattened cardboard boxes and used electronics that our customers want to recycle. We pool all of these items together to raise money for local charitable organizations and keep the unwanted items out of landfills. Individually the rebate on recycled cartridges and electronics is not much, but when accumulated over time, it can make a difference!

In order to accomplish this goal of raising money for charity, we have guidelines on what we can and cannot collect. To view the list of items we can pick up, click here. In order to keep this program viable and be able to raise fund for these local charities, we ask that we pick-up recycling when we are dropping off an office supply order to you.

As you may know, we use the program to raise funds for some wonderful local charities. In the past eleven years, Garvey's has been able to raise over $306,000 for local charities and we hope to continue to grow this program.

In 2018, we will be raising money for:

1st Qtr: TBA

During the first quarter of 2018, we will begin collecting empty toner cartridges and donated electronics for Chicago Child Care Society. Located in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, Chicago Child Care Society (CCCS) is the oldest continually operating child welfare agency in the state of Illinois.

Chicago Child Care Society has a 168-year history of providing unconditional support to families in our community and being the family for countless children who met the unfortunate fate of losing theirs. Since our founding in 1849, our programs, services, initiatives and partnerships have taken shape to meet the ever changing needs of vulnerable children. The common thread through every year of our existence is the core belief that children thrive when they are nurtured, supported and given opportunities to learn in a stimulating environment. Chicago Child Care Society mission is to provide innovative, community-based education and social service programs that address the current and emerging needs of vulnerable children and their families.
