Recycle Your Inkjet Printer Cartridge For Cash

Out of the 60 million inkjet cartridges and 44 million toner cartridges used each year in Canada alone, less than 8% are recylced leaving over 95 million of them being thrown away and ending up in landfill sites.

Landfill sites contain over $100 million worth in raw materials from discarded printer cartridges alone. These cartridges contain precious oil resources (it can take up to 6 pints (almost 3.5 litres) of oil to make just one printer cartridge), as well as cartridge ink, both worth a fortune to replace as new.

In less than one year, recycling cartridges in Canada could save more oil than the 11,000,000 gallons spilled by the Exxon Valdez oil tanker into Prince William Sound in Alaska in 1989.


Recycle Your Inkjet Printer Cartridges

Next time you are replacing your Lexmark or Hewlett Packard inkjet cartridges please do not dispose of the old ones. We can put them to good use!

For every inkjet cartridge sent to our recycler we receive £1. With a PC in approximately 40 per cent of homes in the UK, in addition to those in businesses, schools, colleges and hospitals, you can help us raise thousands of pounds to help people in crisis.

Currently only about 5 per cent of all inkjet cartridges are actually recycled - the rest end up in landfill sites. So, you can help the environment and the British Red Cross by recycling your used Lexmark and Hewlett Packard inkjet cartridges.


Sound Moves to Help Planet Recycle Inkjets

Sound Primary School have been trying to increase recycling within their school and their Eco Club were delighted to be able to introduce aluminium can and inkjet recycling with the help of the trust.

The club have spent their Wednesday lunch times on energy saving projects such as making bird feeders from recycled materials and keeping an eye on energy use in the school by switching off lights and computers when not in use.

Eco club member and primary seven pupil Antony Symons said: "I think recycling is pretty good. I am worried about the report that the Earth may run out of resources in about 40 years."
