Over $421,500 Raised For Local Charities

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 seventeen years, Garvey's has been able to raise over $421,500 for local charities and we hope to continue to grow this program.

1st Qtr: $2,500.00

The Children's Center of Berwyn-Cicero

2nd Qtr: TBD

3rd Qtr: TBD
