Do you have surplus, full cartridges for an old printer that broke down (or was upgraded)? Or unused cartridges you want to donate because you ordered the wrong model number? We'll find a new home for them by reusing them, and help the environment & charity by planting trees.
We plant 20 trees on your behalf with our partner charity Trees for the Future for every unused cartridge we can reuse, and 2 trees for every eligible empty cartridge.
empty = 2
unused = 20 s
You'll get a free pickup or local drop-off option for your unused cartridges, and Freepost and collection services for empty cartridges.
Each tree planted absorbs an estimated 280kg of CO2, and 1 cartridge reused saves up to 3 liters of oil.
Even if your cartridges aren't eligible, we'll show you other recycling options.
Printing has significant costs on our environment — since 2015 CartridgeForest helps you reduce your carbon footprint by reusing your new and unused cartridges, and helping to plant an entire forest of trees!
Recycle for free now — all types of cartridges, mobile phones — help us plant trees, save waste from landfill, and reverse your printing carbon footprint! If we can't use your items to plant trees, we'll help you find a free alternative.
Not ready yet? Register as a recycler so we can keep in touch. You get occasional email updates on sustainable printing, our charity impact, and you'll be reminded to recycle!
