5 Ways To Recycle Ink Cartridges

Recycling is part of the new environmentally modern age. Here's a few simple tips and tricks to recycle ink cartridges:

1. When your ink cartridge has finished check if it can be recycled and the price of the cartridge at

2. To increase the amount of money you make from recycling ink cartridges, get the empty cartridges from your friends and family if they don't need them.

3. Most recycling companies offer a free post recycling service for your ink cartridges, so you can recycle as many empty ink cartridges as you want.

4. Make sure the ink cartridges are empty and cleaned, or in a relatively clean state, this will mean your inks get sorted, checked and added to your account quickly.

5. Always make a list of what cartridges you have recycled. Items can get lost in the post. Attach a list of your empty ink cartridges with your account number inside your box or bag and also make sure your account number is clearly marked on the outside of the bag in a permanent marker.

Then spend your money when you get a check at the end of the month for all that hard work. Happy ink recycling.
