Printer cartridges

Get them refilled

Why not take your empty cartridges to be refilled? You can save up to 60% on the price of a new cartridge!

Refill them yourself

Refilling ink jet cartridges is straightforward and can be done on a DIY basis, with a number of companies supplying the ink and refilling equipment.

When buying your printer, choose one that uses cartridges that can be easily refilled or that can easily accept generic or refilled cartridges.

What else can I do with them?

Donate them. Lots of charities collect empty printer cartridges to raise money by refilling and reselling them.

Supermarkets offer incentives to recycle your inkjet cartridges with them:

  • Earn extra Green Clubcard points by recycling with Tesco. Receive up to 100 points for each cartridge recycled; take a look at the list of eligible cartridges to see if your cartridge qualifies and to confirm the number of Clubcard points available.

Take a look at the internet to find charities in your area that are collecting printer cartridges.
