How to Pack Inkjets & FREEPOST

Royal Mail Jiffy Bag plus Small & Large Parcel FREEPOST Service for ink cartridges.

Royal Mail Jiffy Bag plus Small & Large Parcel FREEPOST Service for ink cartridges.

Ink cartridges returned for recycling must conform to Royal Mail conditions on the maximum size and weight of either a parcel, a jiffy bag/padded envelope or a box, as follows.....

1. JIFFY BAG OR PADDED ENVELOPE: If you have at least £10 net worth (£12 with vat) of ORIGINAL MAKE ink cartridges with a buy-back value to recycle, as shown on this site (see prices under product makes in header bar) you can send in a jiffy bag or a padded envelope.

Important: Please do not use an ordinary paper envelope (non padded) to return your inkjet cartridges in. It will almost certainly tear open during handling by the Postal operators, and either some cartridges will be lost, or they will be damaged, or both. The Post Office will reseal for delivery, but we will not pay for damaged or lost cartridges as a result of being sent in a plain non-padded, as opposed to a jiffy bag or fully padded envelope.

2. SMALL BOX: You can send in a small box of inkjets, something for example, the size and dimensions of an old shoe box, if the dimensions are no more than

Small Box:. 45 cm (17.5") x 35 cm (13.5") x 16 cm (6.1")

Maximum weight of a Small Box-2KG

3. LARGE BOX: If a much larger box is necessary (for any volume senders), the maximum box weight and dimensions are as follows:

Large box: 61 cm (2 feet) x 46 cm (1.5 feet) x 46 cm (1.5 feet)

Maximum weight of Large Box-10KG

A. Ensure to include your details in with the parcel, such as a letter heading. This is so we know where the ink cartridges have come from. Alternatively,your inkjets can be donated to charity, the EA Air Ambulance, or raise funds for your own charity.

B. The Freepost service is a 2nd Class non guaranteed service. That means that, if your package of inkjets fails to be delivere, we are not responsible for Royal Mails service delivery standards.

B. When returning ink cartridges for recycling, if you parcel or box contains a greater volume of inkjets, or with a higher value, you may wish to pay extra for a Recorded Delivery Service. This should cover any loss, in the event that, for any reason the Post Office/Royal Mail fail to deliver.
