Inkjet Cartridge Recycling

In a landfill, empty cartridges of ink
Stay up to 450 years-that stinks!
So when your printer is out, don't throw the toner away,
Recycle instead and bring good things your way!

Recycle Inkjet Cartridges

Next time your printer spits out a faded page, take out the ink cartridge and step away from your garbage can! Recycling your toner and ink cartridges is an easy and beneficial green change that everyone can make.

  • Inkjet cartridge recycling is a fast way to earn credit at your local office supply store. The more cartridges you bring in, the more rewards you can earn!
  • Computer ink cartridges can also be mailed to different organizations that will offer you cash for your earth-friendly efforts. Each cartridge may only return a quarter or two to your pocket, but these days, every quarter counts!
  • Free inkjet recycling is offered through approximately 1,500 U.S. Post Offices. Pre-paid postage envelopes are available and your cartridges will be shipped back to Clover Technologies Group for reuse.
