Text will be: HalfDate.com Recycle Drive

More About Recycling/Fundraising

Your donation may be tax deductible. (ask your tax specialist).

Did you know that one cell phone can pollute up to 132,000 liters of drinking water. Your unwanted Cell phones and inkjet cartridges will be recycled in accordance with EPA regulations or Refurbished and reused.

Every time we throw electronic gadgets in the trash we hurt our environment. The casings do not biodegrade and the metals (lead, gold, lithium and others) eventually find their way into our ground water. Heavy metals in our rivers and creeks kill fish, plants and other forms of life causing an imbalance in nature. We can stop this from happening and support a worth cause at the same time.

This project is perfect for students and others who need to earn Community Service hours. It is also a good project for Girl/Boy Scout Troops, service organizations, masjid/Islamic centers and other places of worship. Each item donated is like cash to us. Please do not alter the shipping label. All the information is there for it to go directly where it needs to go and we (e.g. Baitul Salaam) get the credit for the shipment, insh’Allah.

If your employer has not contracted with someone to dispose of toner packs from copiers let us know right away, insh’Allah. We will contact them to show them how they can properly dispose of the toner packs.


How To Be A Collection Point?

As Salaamu Alaikum,

We recycle in Atlanta all the time.  Let’s keep it easy.  I am going
to lay out the steps for an easy recycling drive.

Step 1

Secure permission from the leadership in your community to collect
items listed:  old cell phones (can work as well as non-working),
empty ink jet cartridges and toner packs from copy machines, iPods,
mp3 players, game consoles, digital cameras, digital video recorders
and laptops. Get a large box and get some children to decorate it.
Give them some paper, scissors, bright color paper and let the have
fun.  Someone older can go over the box to make sure everything is
pasted on it is secure.

** Please use this flyer

Step 2

Check the box once or twice a week to make sure only electronic items
are going into he box.  When it fills, or close to filling or at the
end of the month (January 31) whatever happens first email
haleem1@aol.com (me) for simple directions on how to ship.  You will
receive postage paid labels from me to use (no cost to you).  Collect
some old boxes to ship (do not buy new ones).

Now if you are going to support both Al Maun and Baitul Salaam
organizations at the end of the drive check with Al Maun and see what
items they are collecting, insh’Allah.  Donate some or all of those
items to them.  We will take the balance, insh’Allah. Baitul Salaam is
collecting more items than Al Maun.

The main thing is to not over think it.  Keep it simple.  If you need
me to send you an annoncement that can be made to your community after
Salatul Jumuah, etc., will be glad to do so, insh’ Allah. Also if
people in your community need to talk to me directly fine they can
email me at haleem1@aol.com or call me at (404) 608-8649.

Thank you for wanting to assist.

May Allah continue to bless you.

Do an inventory of your collection: total number of each item. Decide how you want to split your collection. Then contact each group to receive further instructions. Warning: When you pack your items do not use air pillows, peanuts or other fancy packing materials just use newspaper. Please do not buy shipping boxes use old ones remember we are recycling. You will receive easy to follow detail instructions from the organizations. If you need a tax letter let them know in advance of them shipping you the postage paid labels. When the labels arrive use as instructed please do not alter (unless instructed).

If groups want to continue to collect on their own contact each group separately. Baitul Salaam recycles all the time and can give you tips on how to sustain a collection drive in your community. If a masjid wants to start recycling Sr. Hadayai will be glad to act as a consultant. She only ask that your community makes a donation to the Baitul Salaam Network, Inc. at least once a year, in-sha-llah.

    As Salaamu Alaikum,

    We first want to thank Halfdate.com for all of your help. We need to make a correction we want old cell phones (many people change cell phones like they change clothes and accessories). We are also accepting old game consoles, iPods, digital cameras, digital video recorders and laptop computers. Just start collecting, send us an email with your mailing address and we will send you a postage paid mailing label.

    Shukran!

    As salaamu alaykum wa rahmatulah

    On behalf of the staff and helpers of Al Maun Fund, we would like to extend our appreciation in advance to HalfDate.com for being such an avenue of good.

    Cell phones and used ink cartidriges (and who doesn’t have plenty of those!) are the only items we are collecting,

    We suggest that if you work in an environment, such as workplace, school etc where you can place a collection box this will multiply the possible donations of the recyclables.

    For our fundraiser, the shipping labels will cover up to 30 lbs, so you can wait until you have a a nice amount or send what you have, whatever works for the collector.

    We look forward to hearing from everyone! Please email with your full name and mailing address to receive the prepaid labels insha’allah.

    Barakallahu feekum!

    Assalam alaikum wa rahmatullah,

    in regards to the Recycling Drive, if we are collecting at our Masjid, how do you suggest we gather everything for pickup? Should we use a big empty trash bin or giant box or something like that?

    Also, is there an exact list of what we should and SHOULD NOT collect for this drive? The more specific we are the easier it will be, inshaAllah. Please let me know.

    jazakhAllah khair!

    What an awesome photo of the guy pulling all those recyclables. It makes me think of our Prophet’s advice: Abu Hurairah (RAA) reported that the messenger of Allah (SAW) said what translated means: “By He in Whose hand my soul is (i.e, by Allah), it is better for one of you to take a rope, cut firewood and carry it on his back (as a means of making a living) than to ask others (for charity) whether they give it to him or withhold it from him. ” Al-Bukhari

    2- start such programs in your country to benefit your local communities
    3- you can contribute towards expenses of the drive (so far it’s covered by HalfDate, but we may open the door, if you really want to take part).

    Please don’t ship items from overseas :) You may run into custom issues and end up cost you more than the items themselves :))

    Asalamu Alaykum W. Wb

    This is a great idea Mansha’Allah! Looks like the Islamic University in MN is already involved, that’s where I go to for my Islamic education. Insha’Allah I will help out in anyway I can.

    May Allah reward all of you for your hard work…Amin!

    Assalamu’alaikum…
    May Allah bless this website, so many creative ideas to get rewards from Allah.
    Speaking about keeping our environment clean…all this time I’ve been thinking to bring and use paper bag myself for shopping stuff instead of plastic that’s very commonly used here in my country, Indonesia

    Brothers and sisters…do you have any idea how I can support this drive? [by non-funding way, coz…i’m still unemployee :( ]

    I’m from outside UK or USA, so if I want to do the recycle program like what HalfDate offer, what and how do I have to do?

    Jazakumullah khairan katsira

    As Salaamu Alaikum,

    Please continue to ask everyone you know. Especially those of you who work outside of your homes in corporate America. You will be surprised how many people change cell phones like shoes and how so many offices/companies are not recycling their empty toner packs (copier ink, fax machine) ink packs, etc.

    There are lots of the items we ask for just collecting dust or worse they are landfills causing all types of problems.

    Please talk about this effort.

    FYI-Baitul Salaam recycles all the time. Just contact us after this drive at haleem1@aol.com if you want to continue collecting on any basis (once or twice per year), etc.

    May Allah continue to bless all of us for thinking about the environment and helping others.

    ma salaam
