Benefits Of Recycling 

Benefits Of Recycling 

No cartridge returned through this programme ever goes to landfill. 
By recycling your inkjet cartridges with us you help to ensure a closed loop system and minimise use of raw materials required for production of new printer cartridges. 
Recycling conserves natural resources by reducing the need for new energy to manufacture new printer cartridges. 
Full regulatory compliance. 
*Laser toner and non-OEM (compatible) ink cartridges will not be accepted as part of this program or generate any donations. 


The sorting of cartridges is done based on several criteria. First, the item must be eligible for reuse. The manufacturer determines which items are eligible for reuse. Then a visual inspection is done by the operators to see if there are any defects in the product. 


Unfortunately, not all items are eligible for reuse. Items that cannot be reused are sent to Close the Loop so that these items can be recycled. During recycling the items are completely dismantled so that all materials are separated from each other. These materials can then be reused as raw materials to make new high-quality products.
