Does anyone know of a decent charity or company for printer toner/cartridge recycling. Iv used actionaid in the past but, for some reason they dont want to pick mine up, rang them 4 times and had no driver turn up, Last time I used a company we purchase from but, as we havnt bought anything for god know how long, doesn't sit right getting them to collect toners for free.
just wondered if anyone had a contact they always use???

We use Cartridge world for our empty toner cartridges. They provide us with a storage bin for empty toners, when it's full I give them a call an normally next day they come and empty it. Every month or so we get a cheque sent which goes back into the Print Consumables budget. Not huge amounts, but better than nothing as they say.

They specialized in recycle for schools. Recycool you can earn money as well.

We use Recycle with Lasertech - Printer Cartridges and Office Products - Lasertech Group
Never had a problem and we get money off credits too. They provide the bins and collect for free.

I signed up for recycool about three weeks ago, and haven't been assigned a number yet...so I signed up for GreenTech Inkjet and Toner Cartridge Recycling on tuesday, and they collected my original toners yesterday. Only down side is that they don't take remans.
Need to find somewhere that does.

very easy - they supply collection boxes, I drop our account manager an email when it's full and they collect next day.. we can have a cheque or nominate a charity..
They also sell remanufactured carts - the quality is quite good..

We use Money to Schools, all we have to do is send in 25 or more at a time and we are paid per toner / cartridge we send in, works really well and we have had no problems.

I find ours aren't worth anything. Do these companies still take them?

Money to Schools just put them down on our statement as "Items with no value", then they just recycle them. We literally just send them anything we have and they are more than happy to accept.
