Staples is one of the world's largest ink recyclers, having recycled more than 110 million ink and toner cartridges in a 24 month period. We're committed to the highest level of sustainability by recycling or reusing 100% of a cartridge's components - the plastics in many end-of-life cartridges are reused to make other products, including items like office trays, pen and paper holders, and even Sustainable Earth by Staples™ calculator casings.
Through our driver pick-up program, we make it easy to recycle your empty ink and toner cartridges. We provide pallet pick-up programs for large returns and prepaid mailing labels for customers without driver service - and we will recycle any brand of ink and toner. Here’s the best part: it’s all provided free of charge so that doing the right thing is even easier.
Cartridges that cannot be reused are recycled to create new products. The process is as follows:
1. Spent cartridges are collected for recycling
2. Carriers deliver used cartridges to collection center
3. Cartridges evaluated for recycling or reusing
4. Cartridges are recycled to extract components and raw material to be used in manufacturing new products or are sorted through ISO 9001 inspection process, remanufactured, tested and packaged for reuse.
If you have 50 or more cartridges to send back at one time, we also offer full pallet pick up for customers. To arrange a bulk pick up email firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll recycle your ink, batteries, and electronics. Our Tech Recycling Program is an eco-preferable plan that fits your schedule. Just give your recyclables to your driver at your next delivery.
