Recycle stamps

Recycle stamps

Recycling used postage stamps is a great way to raise funds for charities. The price for stamps collected has increased recently to almost quadruple the value of ten years ago. Charities across Britain are benefiting from this, and you can help them.

Stamp recycling is a very easy way to help charities. Simply collect the postage stamps from mail you receive, and once you have collected and envelope full, send to our PO BOX address.

Please send all donations of used stamps for recycling to:

‘Name of charity of your choice’
PO Box 6107
KW16 9AB.

We pay charities £7.50 for every kilo of donated stamps you can send us.  We accept all postage stamps and we will pay more if the GB stamps are separated from the World stamps. Collections are also accepted and treated with great respect. If valuable, we sell stamps on our Citadel Fundraisers ebay account, giving 90% of proceeds to the charity.

The stamps should be carefully clipped, leaving plenty of room [5 – 10mm] around the stamp. This will increase the value of the stamps to the charity of your choice, making them more money!

Recycle stamps for charity

Asking others to recycle stamps is a huge boost for the charity. Encouraging work colleagues, faith communities, schools, friends, family and neighbours to save used stamps, will greatly increase funds raised.
After Citadel Stamps sorted all the valuable stamps from your donations, the left over waste paper is then recycled locally as animal bedding, fire briquettes, garden mulch and compost.
