Terms & Conditions


Thank you for choosing to use our service!


  • 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. Please notify us where the package will be left if someone is not able to be at the collection. 
  • 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. A label will be provided for your boxes by the driver or via email to enable us to identify your goods.
  • A minimum of £10.00 in your basket is required to use our service.
  • When sending in any mobile phone it is the responsibility of the member to remove the SIM card and reset or restore the phone to factory settings. 
  • Please allow up to 21 days from the day your parcel arrives to be processed and booked in. Once, you receive your itemised breakdown payment will automatically be paid with 48hrs. 
  • Please note: We may send a gentle reminder to post your cartridges by the end of the month otherwise the label will be cancelled. This is because our prices can change monthly and we do not want you to miss out on the prices in your basket. Please ignore this if you have already sent them or intend to do it by the end of the month. If, your label does get cancelled do not worry you can request another one through the basket process - thank you.
  • We do not collect Brother, Epson or Kodak compatible and remanufactured cartridges. We reserve the right to charge a 15p disposal fee for each item plus collection cost. 
  • Please ensure you put the correct type of cartridge in the basket as there is a price difference between an empty and an unused full cartridge. If, you select an unused full cartridge but send in an empty used cartridge it will reduce the value and you may not reach the £10 minimum basket total. This can mean the cost of postage is not covered and we reserve the right to charge the shipping cost. You may incur charges if the incorrect item is sent. 
  • All unused cartridges must be in the original factory sealed box or bag. If, you send an unused cartridge in an open box/bag it will be booked in as an empty and the value paid will be the empty price. Please note: any box or bag that has been opened and sealed by the sender e.g using their own tape will be classed as an empty cartridge.
  • We do not take unused empty laser toner cartridges.
  • Please note: you may receive a split package charge if you send in multiple packages within the same month. The Tracked 48 Royal Mail label allows parcels up to 20KG's to be sent in for FREE.

If an ink cartridge you send us fails this test you will not be paid for it but you will not be charged.
