Recycling

Did you know that more than 1.1 billion inkjet cartridges are used globally each year?

If you stacked these end-to-end, they would make a line 129 times longer than the Great Wall of China!

However, the plastic contained within the casing of a printer cartridge can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. It also takes 3 pints of oil to create just 1 cartridge. By recycling your cartridges, you help reduce this figure.

The good news is that we have the facilities to help make a difference! Recycle your old inkjet and laser cartridges easily and quickly with us and help raise funds for charity too!

Packing Guidlines

Please pack as many cartridges into one parcel as possible. It helps us keep costs down and give more money to charity. We also request that you pack the cartridges securely to prevent damage to them and consider that the carriers transport parcels for other people so do not want toner spilling into their vans.



We encourage you to re-use old boxes to pack your cartridges into. This helps our environment by preventing the un-necessary production of new boxes and reduces the carbon emissions related to the delivery of the box(es).

Please seal the box to prevent damage to the cartridges in transit.

I don’t have a box....

Not to worry. Pop the used cartridges back into their original boxes and tape a few together. 8 usually make a decent size package.

The carriers really do not like this method, but if you don’t have tape, pop the cartridges, in their boxes, into a STRONG bin liner to keep them together.
