Lets Help To Reduce Landfill
In the UK alone it is estimated that more than 30 million empty inkjet cartridges are thrown into landfill sites every year. Worldwide this figure increases to over 375 million.

Recycling inkjet cartridges decreases the amount of waste that is put into our landfills and ensures you can continue to buy cheaper alternative printer cartridges..

We want to help reduce landfills and recycle more products. You can help us by returning your empty inkjet cartridges. By recycling them we can help to protect the environment, safeguard our health and save energy. We do this in three ways:

By halting the massive drain on our natural resources - a new cartridge uses approx. 2.8 Litres of oil to make!
By avoiding burning massive amounts of rubbish, which releases harmful toxins into the atmosphere.
By reducing the already overburdened landfill sites. These sites contain ever-increasing millions of cubic feet of non-biodegradable material, which can take over 1,000 years to biodegrade.

Start Collecting Empty Printer Cartridges Today!
Most people given the choice, would rather dispose of their empty cartridges in a way that would benefit the environment. If you know of any person or organisation that would like to recycle their printer cartridges please tell them about this page.

How Many Times Can You Recycle An Inkjet Cartridge?
On average, each inkjet cartridge, can be recycled 5-6 times. However sometimes a cartridge may not recycle even once whilst others may be recycled more than 6 times. What we do know with certainty is that all inkjet cartridges will wear out eventually and will need to be replaced, but if they can be used at least more than once, that will help the environment.

Inkjet Cartridge and Toner Cartridge Recycling
Where possible, re-use the packaging we've sent you to make our packaging go even further! You can also send it to us here at the following address, and we will be happy to recycle them for you! We are currently looking at a new toner recycling service - so for the time being, please store your toners safely and we will be able to recycle them for you soon! Please Note that this is not a freepost service, so please remember to put a stamp on it otherwise it will be returned to you. As a tip, if you remove all outer boxes/etc. then most cartridges can be put in to the original packaging and covered under a "Large Letter" - but check with the local Post Office first!
