WEEE Recycling –  Did you know? As we can’t recycle every cartridge at Empties Please, there is an alternative way that stops them going into landfill. Since 2016 manufacturers and suppliers of printer cartridges have a legal responsibility and duty of care to ensure that their used printer cartridges do not end up in landfill. If we are unable to recycle your product, contact the manufacturer or supplier and ask if you can them back to them under the WEEE Directive. They should then supply you with means to return the items back to them with no cost to yourself.

Thank you for recycling with us!
