Printing has significant costs on our environment — cartridgeforest aims to recycle your cartridges, reverse your carbon footprint, and plant an entire forest of trees!
We plant 20 trees on your behalf with our partner charity Trees for the Future for every unused cartridge we receive that can be successfully reused.
Over 72,000 trees have been planted to date!
Free collections or local drop-offs for ink and toner cartridges.
1 cartridge reused instead of binned saves up to 2.5kg in CO2, and 1 tree absorbs 180kg of CO2 in its lifetime on average.
Even if your cartridges aren't eligible, or you have any used cartridges, we'll show you other recycling options for these.
Since 2015 CartridgeForest has been helping consumers and businesses to donate their used inkjet and empty laser cartridges, full cartridges and mobile phones for recycling. You reduce your carbon footprint, and we plant trees for every reusable cartridge that you send us!
When over 75% of our cartridges end up in landfill, it's vital to change something as they'll take thousands of years to decompose, so we encourage reuse or recycling of cartridges.
Whatever you have, we'll help you find a way to recycle it — even if we can't take your particular items — and importantly all our services are free. So we'll offer you a free drop-off, collection, or Freepost address for your items if we can reuse your items.
