Free Ink Cartridge Recycling | Toner Cartridge Recycling
Discarded printer products are a serious problem in landfills: over 1 million used cartridges are thrown away each year! When the replacements are made from virgin materials that adds up a lot of waste - hundreds of thousands of tons of it - and you pay good money for that waste. But don't worry! You can save money by ink cartridge recycling, and you can help the environment by toner cartridge recycling.
How do I start?
We ask that you send in at least 8 empty cartridges at a time. Fill out the form below, including a list of the cartridges being returned (the number of each by product number, or by printer model and cartridge color). A few days later you will receive a shipping return tag in the mail that can be used to return the products to our recycling center.
To ensure a response, please be very careful to provide complete and accurate information!
Why should I recycle ink and toner?
When you recycle ink cartridges you avoid the manufacturers' trap that often makes it cheaper to buy a new printer than to buy ink for the one you have. When you recycle toner cartridges you conserve resources, an average of 3.5 pounds of material each.
Remanufactured cartridges (as opposed to simple refills) begin as high-quality products. When they run dry and are sent for remanufacture, the cartridges are disassembled and inspected. Worn components are replaced, and the cartridges are reassembled, filled, and inspected just as they were when first manufactured. This is doing toner recycling and recycling ink cartridges the smart way!
Printer cartridge recycling saves us money because only the components subject to wear and tear get replaced with new parts; the main body of the cartridge can be reused multiple times. Even after we pay for shipping, with free ink cartridge recycling and toner cartridge recycling at Ink Technologies there are still plenty of savings to pass back to you.
