About us

Not only are we passionate about recycling and helping to protect our environment but we also strive to help organisations raise much needed funds, both locally and nationally.

We help generate funds through the recycling of used printer inkjet cartridges. Working with schools, churches, charities and other organisations, educating and encouraging people to donate their empty inks as opposed to putting them in the bin.

It’s estimated around 45 million inkjet cartridges are used in the UK alone each year, with less than 5% being recycled! Sadly those that aren't recycled are ending up in landfill and our oceans. We're working to put a stop to this and provide a solution which will have a positive impact on the world we live in.



What do we do?

We encourage people to collect empty inkjet cartridges to be recycled. We provide a free and easy service, arrange free collections and can collect all quantities, from a shoe-sized box to a pallet, or even a trailer.

Once the inks are collected, we process them for remanufacturing / reuse / recycling. We can either pay you or donate a value to your chosen charity for all Printhead inkjet cartridges collected

How do we do it?

It’s a simple process and anyone can get involved. It’s as easy as:

  1. Collect empty printer inkjet cartridges in a cardboard box or send them to us using our Freepost recycle bags
  2. We will collect boxes for free (min. 25 inkjet cartridges)
  3. We will recycle everything and pay you a value for Printhead inkjet cartridges

Why do we do it and why should you get involved?

Each year in the UK alone, millions of printer inkjet cartridges are used and thrown in the bin. Ink cartridges are not only made of materials which take years to decompose but they can also contain hazardous chemicals, both these factors are damaging to the environment.

Our waste solution is a step towards preventing printer inkjet cartridges from ending up in landfill or our oceans and fighting to protect our environment.


Who can do it?

Anyone and everyone can get involved, whether you’re an individual wanting to have a positive impact towards the waste plastic problem we’re facing, a business looking to raise funds for a chosen charity, a waste management company wanting to increase revenue, charity wanting to raise funds and support the work your organisation provides or even school, wanting to educate your pupils and raise funds for school equipment.
