Recycling PolicyMillions of ink and toner cartridges are thrown away every year, often ending up in landfill sites. The plastics and metals they contain can take up to 1000 years to decompose. Re-using material which would normally have been thrown away has dramatic effects. It not only protects our environment but also slows man’s consumption of the earth’s already depleted resources.
At Refresh Cartridges we have teamed up with a number of specialist recyclers in order that we can recycle practically every printer cartridge that will ever come out of your printer.
When you send back a cartridge to us, one of two things will happen.
The cartridge will either:
- a) Be stripped down, cleaned out, any parts replaced that
need to be replaced and it will then be recycled as a cheaper
aftermarket remanufactured cartridge.
- b) It will be taken back to a specialised recycling facility where the metals and plastic components will be separated, shredded and recycled as a different consumer product.
None of our cartridges end their life in landfill.
Buying re-manufactured printer cartridges rather than new reduces the energy required to produce the goods which has a real impact on CO2 emissions.
How we deal with your empty cartridge depends on the cartridge that you have to recycle and the quantity you possess.
