Empty cartridge recycling is one of the most effective ways to reduce carbon footprints. However, setting up a cartridge recycling program for your customers may not exactly be on your day to day schedule. We understand – as a reseller, recycling isn't necessarily your core competency. Your first priority is moving product out the door, not trying to bring it back in.

Through the dedicated recycling arm of our company, we have a way that you can set up a cartridge recycling program without causing inefficiency in your day to day operations. You get all of the credit with your customers, and we do all of the back end work. Sound like something interesting? Here are the steps for your minimal effort cartridge recycling program.

We have many processing and consolidations locations that will receive all shipments of recyclable materials.
