Collections from your school or business. Get paid to recycle.

Schools and businesses can arrange for used printer cartridges to be collected directly from their premises and get paid for each cartridge they recycle. It really couldn't be easier to do something positive to help protect the environment and keep these items out of the landfill.

Cartridge World

Cartridge World will buy empty inkjet and laser printer cartridges that they will then refill or refurbish. They will help your school, business or community group to set up recycling collections within your buildings and will even come and empty the collection boxes for you after you tell them they are full.

Schools will be paid for each partridge they recycle. For collections at businesses, Cartridge World will send a check to a local school on your behalf instead, so your recycling effort will be helping to support your local community.

For more details contact your local store or see the information on the Cartridge World Recycling webpage.
