Ecotricity

Ecotricity is unique – income from your electricity and gas bills is used to build new sources of renewable energy, such as windmills, helping to protect the environment as well as donating up to £60 for WDC each time a new customer signs up or switches.

Andy Parker, Partnerships Account Manager, said: “We’ve been proudly supporting WDC for almost a decade now, and our sign-up incentive is one of the most successful ways we’ve been able to do that. It’s simple – we’ll donate up to £60 to WDC when you switch to Ecotricity. The more people who join us, the more green energy we can build in Britain, whilst also supporting WDC and the great work they do."

Call 08000 302 302 or visit www.ecotricity.co.uk/WDC and remember to quote WDC1 when you switch or sign up.

And if supporting WDC isn’t enough, here are 3 more reasons to join Ecotricity:

1. Britain's greenest energy company: Ecotricity does everything it can to minimise its carbon footprint, from the 100% green electricity and frack-free green gas it supplies, to the running of the company’s offices.

2. Best customer service: No automated call waiting, just friendly people who pick up the phone.

3. Ethical pricing: All Ecotricity customers are always on the latest best price, no matter when they joined and regardless of how they pay. What’s more, there are no exit fees or penalties either.

JUNE 2020 UPDATE:  TRF's Freepost envelopes are being phased out and replaced with boxes. The box will hold more cartridges so you won't have to post cartridges back to TRF as often.  Please also note that toner cartridges are no longer accepted.

The Recycling Factory also offers tailored recycling schemes for businesses either via a Freepost service for smaller quantities or a free courier collection for larger amounts.

For any help with setting up an individual or business account, contact info@trf-uk.com
