Inkjet Cartridges

If you use any of the following inkjet printer cartridges – HP, Dell, Lexmark, Canon, Samsung, Neopost – we can now recycle them for cash. It is only these brands please.
As the company will only pay for inkjet cartridges, you can check here to see if your cartridges are on the ‘accepted’ list
This one works differently: when you have at least 2 of the listed cartridges ready to send please email your name and address to and we will post a freepost bag out to you. Each bag holds up to 4 or 5 cartridges so please tell us how many cartridges you have. Once you have received your first bag from us you will be able to order more direct from the recycling company.
N.B. We cannot recycle toner cartridges.

Please note: there is no maximum parcel size. As long as the parcel weighs more than 15kg we will be credited.


If you still use stamps and are prepared to pay to post them off for us then this is what we’ve been asked to do:
1) cut your used stamps out of the envelope (rather than tear them off please) leaving about half a cm round the stamp
2) when you have an envelope full of used stamps, address it as follows:
(THIS ADDRESS IS JUST FOR STAMPS – it’s not a charity address. Addressing it to us is how we are credited.)

If you send over 5kg and would like to be reimbursed please ask the Post Office for a receipt that shows the address it’s being sent to and the weight of the parcel and amount that you’ve paid. Email the receipt to with your name and address and we’ll send you a cheque to cover it.
