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?
Please wait until you have at least one full box of cartridges before you submit a return request. Each box must contain a minimum of 20 cartridges (inkjet or smaller cartridges) OR weigh a minimum of 20 pounds (larger toner cartridges).
Fill out the form below, including the number of shipping labels that you need. You will receive an email response within 1 business day with the shipping labels you requested. These shipping labels can be used to return the products to our recycling center.
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.
