Why Recycle?

Inkjet Cartridges

  • Over 300 million inkjets are sold in Europe each year and only 15% of these are remanufactured.
  • Every year in the UK, around 45 million printer cartridges end up in landfill taking an estimated 1000 years to decompose.
  • Up to 1 litre of oil is used in the manufacture of a new printer cartridge.
  • Recycling everyday objects such as paper, bottles and printer cartridges saves energy. The materials that you recycle are used to create new products you buy. This means less new materials need to be mined or harvested, processed, manufactured and transported — all of which consume energy.
  • Please check our wanted list to find out if your inkjet cartridges are suitable for the Recycle4Charity programme. Each printer cartridge from the wanted list that is recycled will raise £1 for your chosen charity or non-profit organisation.
