Jewellery Recycling

Your old unwanted jewellery can help Viva!, animals & the environment!

Viva! have had great success since 2012 with our partners Recycling For Good Causes.


Recycling for Viva!

You can donate all your broken and unwanted jewellery to raise money for Viva!.  If you have any gold, silver, odd earrings, broken chains, costume jewellery and watches, you can recycle them at no cost to you whilst making money for Viva!.


Why Recycle?

Recycling reduces the demand for raw materials. This means less mining or quarrying. Many parts of the world have been blighted by mining and quarrying, which destroy the natural environment and wildlife habitats and can cause environmental and health problems for local people. Recycling is one way in which our community can lessen their usage of resources and help protect the environment.


We can recycle:

  • Any jewellery – gold, silver, costume jewellery, watches, broken and damaged items (like odd earrings, snapped chains or items with missing stones).
  • You can donate any unwanted banknotes from ANY country of any age, so all of those obsolete pre-euro notes are a perfect start!


Our partners at Recycling for Good Causes will reuse and recycle the jewellery and Banknotes, giving the proceeds to Viva!, saving precious raw materials at the same time.


If you would like to send your jewellery and banknote recycling to us pop your items into your own envelope or jiffy bag no larger than a size A5 envelope and post free of charge to:

B77 4RP

*Please do not send coins to the freepost address above as the postage costs will far outweigh your donation.*


Donate your Stamps

You can now donate your used stamps to raise much needed funds for Viva!. All kinds of stamps are welcome, on or off paper.

Simply cut or carefully rip the postage stamp from the used envelope, being careful that you don’t damage the stamp, and once you have a collection pop them in an envelope making sure you have the correct postage to:

PO Box 16992
Sutton Coldfield
B73 9YA

*Postage needs to be applied


Recycling for Good Causes will arrange collections for larger quantities of stamps weighing over 10kgs. This equates to about two buckets full of stamps.
