Recycling Service. Sell simple online.

What ink cartridges do you pay for? We pay for those genuine original ink cartridge makes/models shown on our site with a buy-back price. You can include other ink cartridges for recycling, on a 1 for 1 basis, i.e. 10 paid ink cartridges and 10 other, e.g. compatible, or non value not showing.

What about other ink cartridges makes like Epson? Many new style individual four colour ink cartridges are made from lightweight plastic, such as Epson, Brother, and also some HP & Canon etc. These often break during remanufacturing. If not show on our site, we do not pay for them.

Do you take back other used printer consumables? No, sorry, we do not take back toner cartridges, drum units, fusers, imaging units, or any other printer consumable to recycle. We specialise in inkjet cartridge recycling only.

Do you buy back non-original makes? No, we do not pay for non-original copies or compatible ink cartridges, as they can wear after reuse thereby affecting print quality. However, compatible ink cartridges can be sent on a 1 for 1 basis for recycling.

You provide Freepost? Yes, the Freepost label is provided by email after you "Check out". Affix it to your parcel and simply drop off at your local Post Office or Royal Mail Depot.

Do you pay for all ink cartridges sent back?

Yes, we pay for all genuine original make ink cartridges shown with a price on our site with THREE EXCEPTIONS:

1. If a package or carton is received poorly packed, without care, or in insufficient packaging, we will AUTOMATICALLY DEDUCT 10% FOR DAMAGES. The foils connector easily damages. Please see "How to Pack Inkjets & FREEPOST." .

2. Do you buy-back Inkjets supplied FREE with a printer? No. Any marked "Starter", or "Set-up" have a reduced internal capacity. They are literally to "get you started" when "settng up" a brand new printer. They have no further commercial reuse value beyond their initial use

>!3. Do you buy-back "Instant Inks"? !!<Sorry No. These are supplied "Just-in-Time" direct from HP, and have a different electronic component designed to prevent recycling by anyone other than HP. NB: These can, however, be returned with an order for your convenience.

Do you check & exclude any ink cartridges? We check that all ink cartridges are Genuine (OEM) Original Equipment Manufactured, e.g. Canon/HP.and not compatible (which can be sent on a 1 for 1 basis for disposal). We do not use any checking machine. You get paid for those genuine original ink cartridges sent back, at the price shown on the site. Inkjets supplied FREE with a new printer have no reuse value.

Do you use an electronic checking machine? No, but some others may prepare you for a short-fall in the cartridges you send by stating they use a machine to check for failures. This may result in you being told a percentage have failed and zero payment made for these. Be aware of any site offering high back-back prices.
