What we CAN and CAN’T recycle at Empties Please…
On 1st June 2016, In-line with current market values, we are introducing a variable price list for empty ink cartridges returned. Some values have increased above the £1 previously offered, and some have decreased.
Unfortunately due to the age of certain cartridges we are no longer able to offer any money for them.
If your cartridge is not on our pricelist, unfortunately we are unable to accept them. (Please visit your manufacturer’s website for more information on recycling these cartridges or contact your retailer – Inks and toners are now covered by the WEEE directive and retailers have a responsibility to provide a collection service for inks and toners that they have sold.)
We now accept some ORIGINAL BRANDED toners from Manufacturers such as HP, Dell, Brother, Samsung etc. To see if we can accept your original branded toner, they must be on our ‘Toners Accepted for recycling’ list. Unfortunately we are unable to recycle ANY compatible or remanufactured Toner Cartridges. (Please contact your local council to see how you should dispose of these cartridges)
(Payments for returned recycle bins will be made for values of £5 and over, any bins returned with a value of less than £5 will have the amount added to their account and paid once the account has exceeded £5 in total)
Our ‘FREEPOST’ ‘INK’ cartridge returns service at Empties Please…
