AMI has announced the start of a project to recycle computer consumables (ink cartridges and toners) and mobile phones that aims to contribute to the protection of the environment, while helping to finance humanitarian and social action projects developed by the International Medical Assistance foundation.

To put this recycling campaign on the ground, AMI counts on the collaboration of a company specialized in the recycling of recyclable waste that will place containers, in companies, associations, schools and commercial establishments, to collect disused or damaged equipment.

In a statement, the organization explains that it will deliver receipts for donations collected, tax deductible and corresponding to the value of the materials collected. The campaign extends to the entire country and does not have any costs for the entities that decide to contribute.
