    Toner recycler who just takes everything?

    I know this has been asked before, even by myself.

    But all the toner recycling companies want things sorting etc.

    I just want to bung all our empties in a box and wave them off. Too many and I really don't want to faff about.

    Anyone know of a company like that?

    We give all of our empties to The Great North Air Ambulance - Home | Great North Air Ambulance Service

    They provide boxes and collect for free, no sorting required.

    Not sure if they cover your area, but might be worth asking.

    A very worthy cause, in my opinion.

    That's a good idea Andrew - do they give a 'certificate' or something as well? (Would be nice for the charity wall).

    Mark, just had a look at their website and looks like they won't even collect toners they don't recycle though?

    I don't think the toner collection service is mentioned on their web site (I certainly couldn't find it, but correct me if I am wrong).

    We just call them when the collection boxes are full and they send a man with a van. They collect far and wide as far as I understand.

    Lots of schools around here use them.

    Not sure about a certificate, but you could ask them.

    They provide GNAA collection boxes for free (see photo). We just chuck the empty carts in the box and call them when its full! Simples

    Yes I do! We can help you out with this. We take everything, we just need a vague idea of how many you need collecting, we'll send you the boxes and you give me a call/email when they're ready to be collected. Even easier (but perhaps less delicious) than pie.
