Send Empty Toner / Laser Cartridges

Laser cartridges are used in office printers and photocopiers & contain a toner powder & typically a foot long.

We can help you recycle any toner cartridges & try and raise funds for the Against Malaria Foundation if possible at the same time.

Some typical empty toner cartridges

If you have any full or unused cartridges, please use our full cartridge service instead.

If you just have ink cartridges (smaller than a clenched fist, used in personal printers and franking machines), please see our ink recycling service for these instead.

  Organise a Toner Collection

Please enter your details so our partner Ink & Toner Recycling Ltd can contact you to check that they can recycle your empty laser/toner cartridges.

Your details are shared with our collections partner and will only be used to offer this recycling service.

Got Questions?

Is There a Minimum? Is this a free service?

For a free collection you will normally need to have at least 15 valuable empty toner cartridges. Our partner will contact you to check the specific model numbers and quantities of your items to verify they are valuable.

If you have a smaller number, you can wait until you have enough for a collection, or please try our alternative suggestions on our partner site EveryCartridge.

Can you provide Waste Transfer notes?

Yes, these are available on request.

Can I Send Unused Cartridges Too?

Please don't send full or unused cartridges with your empties. Instead, please visit the unused cartridge recycling page to handle any of these as we can raise much more for the AMF if they are handled this way.

Can I Send Small Ink Cartridges Too?

If you qualify for a free collection you can likely send your ink cartridges at the same time. If you just have ink cartridges, or are not eligible for the free collection, please use the ink cartridge recycling service for your ink cartridges instead.

What Happens If You Can't Recycle My Cartridges?

If we can't raise funds from your cartridges, our partner will offer a paid-for service that will take care of your environmental obligations, or you can try our alternative suggestions on our partner site EveryCartridge to try and return them to your manufacturer or supplier free of charge.

Is There Anything I Can't Send?

Please fill in the form and our collections partner will contact you to identify your items.

If you only have compatible / off-brand / remanufactured / recycled cartridges, we will be unable to offer a free service. If you just have a few compatible items, then it may be possible to send these with your original / genuine items if they have enough value.

This service does not accept any toner 'waste cassettes' or 'toner containers', or "toner bottles" that might look like those shown here β€” these have no significant electronics or mechanical parts and no value once empty as they are just hoppers for toner powder:
