We are working with a company called ‘Empties Please’. They collect and recycle used ink cartridges the environmentally friendly way and will donate the money raised back to us!
It’s very simple. All we have to do is collect used ink cartridges in the recycle bags provided and put them in our recycle bin. ‘Empties Please’ will collect the bin when it’s full and then donate money raised straight back to our school with a certificate to display in our reception area.
They will pay us £1 for each original manufacturer cartridge and 50p for a remanufactured cartridge.
There are also other fantastic rewards if we are ‘Champion Collectors’. We can win other prizes for our school to make us even greener - anything from trees to hedgehog houses.
You can collect ink cartridges from absolutely anywhere; school, work, home, clubs, friends and family.
If you could display a bin in your workplace on behalf of our school please let us know.
The more cartridges we can collect the more we can raise. The sky’s the limit! Let’s make it a great success. Happy collecting!
We are unable to recycle and receive payment for the following ink and toner cartridges –
- HP 364 small chip ink cartridges (other HP cartridges CAN be recycled)
- Canon individual colour ink tanks
- Any toner cartridge
