Recycling Printer Cartridges

Fill 'em up!

Can I recycle printer cartridges?

Can they be recycled?

No, recycling centres will not normally accept them for recycling. There are other options and organisations that specialise in recycling your printer cartridge.


Get your cartridge refilled. There are 280 cartridge world stores in the U.K. Just take your empty cartridge and they will refill it for you.

Alternatively, refill it yourself. You can buy ink from companies like ‘JR inkjet’ cartridges by post.


You can also donate your empty printer cartridgesto certain charities. They will re-fill them, then re-sell them to raise money,
