Recycle your empty inkjet cartridges to help protect the environment and raise money for MyTIME. It’s so easy. All you have to do is register and choose who you want to raise money for. You will receive freepost recycling bags and can send back up to five cartridges at a time. We receive £1 a cartridge. Imagine if everyone recycled their cartridges our £1 would compound into more donations.
Inkjets fit in the palm of your hand and have a circuit board and jet plate on the bottom. It’s cartridges with circuit boards that have a recycling value when empty. The circuit boards are patented and cannot be made from new, so an empty must be found and refilled in order to make an alternative to the full OEM product.
Makes you can recycle include HP, Dell, Lexmark, Canon, Samsung, Neopost. Please don’t send Epson or Kodak cartridges as they are actually ink tanks, not inkjets and unfortunately are not on our wanted list.
Inkjet cartridges must be in suitable condition to be recycled.
Only virgin cartridges on our wanted items list raise money for charity when recycled. All inkjet cartridges must pass a visual inspection and electrical test. 'Virgin Cartridges' mean cartridges which have not been refilled before and carry only the original equipment manufacturer's branding.
Cartridges don’t have donation value of £1 if:
- They have been previously refilled
- They have been labelled for another brand like Tesco, PC World or Office Depot
- They have labels removed or extra holes (signs that refilling has been attempted)
- Each wanted cartridge that is recycled will raise £1 for us enabling £1 to compound!
