Our ‘FREEPOST’ ‘INK’ cartridge returns service at Empties Please…

If you do not use enough ink cartridges to warrant having one of our recycle bins but would still like to recycle the cartridges you use, we can send you some of our FREEPOST recycle bags.

All you need to do is complete this form – http://www.emptiesplease.com/bag-requests/ to order some.

Our postal recycle bags are designed for INK cartridges only and you can fit quite a few in them!

Please refer to the list above as to what we can and can’t recycle.

Unfortunately we are unable to make payments for cartridges returned by post.
