Recycle Your Cartridges With Us

Help The Environment, Earn Money Or Support A Charity

Use the Cartridge Price Finder above to discover how much we will pay for your empty cartridges. Please be aware that we do not accept empty Brother or Epson cartridges.


In order to maximise the returns on items you collect, please note the following guidelines:

  • We accept most inkjet cartridges as listed and shown on this site. Please be aware that the types of product and values can vary slightly on a month-to-month basis. 
  • Inkjet cartridges received are subject to examination. Please be aware that we do not just visually inspect inkjet cartridges as we are one of the only few companies that uses a CBR ST200 tester. This enables us to give you a true evaluation as to whether your cartridge is working or non-working. Most companies only visually inspect; if this is the case your cartridge may be seen to be faulty and classed as a reject when it is actually electrically sound. We will also ensure we receive the type and quantity of goods as described by you.
  • You can now request payment by going to the members menu and clicking on the “request payment button” Please allow 30 days from posting in your cartridges. We no longer provide payment via cheque, only by bank transfer or PayPal.
  • If we have to make a collection please ensure that you or someone who is informed is able to oversee the consignment being collected or left somewhere safe.
  • If we advise that a courier will be collecting your consignment you will need to package your cartridges into a secure box and seal it. Labels will be provided for your boxes by the driver to enable us to identify your goods.
  • A minimum of £3.00 is required to use the Prepaid service.

Methods of Shipping:

Because Printer Cartridge Recycling encourages you to re-use old jiffy bags or shoe size boxes this is more environmentally friendly, we do not provide boxes. We also do not provide freepost envelopes as we feel this increases the time between placing the order and receiving your funds. 

We have 3 methods for getting your cartridges to us:

1- If the value of the collection is £3.00 or below you will need to add more items to the basket until you have reached the min value. Your basket has been saved, the items inside it will be restored whenever you log back into your account.

2- If the value of the collection is between £3.01 and £25 and under 2kg they can be send using our Royal Mail prepaid label. (This is a free service).

3 - If the value of the collection is between £25.01 and £75 and under 2kg the item will to be sent using our prepaid Hermes label to take the items to your local drop off shop - whichever is more convenient. (This is a free service).

4 - If the value of the collection is £75 or over we will use Interlink or our own transport. (This is a free service).
