Turn your Trash to Cash in Support of Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Guide Dogs make it easy to recycle your used inkjet cartridges. Simply pop them in an envelope and post Free of Charge to:

NW10 7ZZ

For every recyclable inkjet cartridge returned, Guide Dogs receive £1.00. Inkjet cartridges suitable for recycling are made by Canon, HP and Lexmark. Sorry - not Epson cartridges as these cannot be recycled by GDBA. Epson inkjets and most other cartridges can be recycled by Armor who "re-manufacture" inkjet and laser cartridges rather than just refill them.

Accolade will happily collect your empty laser cartridges when delivering our low cost, eco-friendly office supplies in the Glasgow area. We batch returned cartridges and send them in bulk to save transport costs. Guide Dogs for the Blind benefit from any revenue raised as do Erskine Hospital. Accolade has been donating to Guide Dogs for the Blind Association since 1989 and to Erskine Hospital since 1997.

Please remember that only some OEM (original equipment manufacturer) cartridges can be recycled. If you use compatible cartridges, they can't be refilled a second time. To check your cartridge is suitable for recycling visit: RecycleList.

Save energy by reducing your cartridge waste sent to landfill sites. Inkjet cartridges are non-biodegradable, taking up to 1,000 years to decompose. Manufacturing a new inkjet cartridge takes 6 pints of oil, draining natural resources. Each year, 60 million used inkjet printer cartridges are needlessly thrown away. Avoid the need to burn rubbish which releases harmful toxins into the air. Recycling cartridges helps the environment and safeguards our health.
