What is a Printhead Ink Cartridge?
A printhead ink cartridge is a combination of a metallic strip and chip. The metallic strip (the nozzle) is where the ink is released, and the metallic chip is what connects the ink cartridge to the printer
How many inks do I have to collect to qualify for free collection?
How much are the inks worth?
Inkjet cartridge prices vary from £0.05 up to around £5.00. It will depend on the type of cartridge and the mix we receive to determine the value of the cartridge. On average, a shoe-sized box will generate around £75-£100. We estimate the value at an average of £1 per Printhead inkjet cartridge
Which inks do you accept?
We accept ALL printer inkjet cartridges. We do not reject any printer inkjet cartridge!
Which inks do you pay a value for?
We give a value for most used genuine HP / Canon Printhead inkjet cartridges. We give a value for SOME genuine non-Printhead inkjet cartridges.
Can I recycle my own inks?
Can I send any inks in the freepost recycle bags?
Due to recent changes to the large letter specification and price increases made by the Royal Mail, you now MUST included a MINIMUM of 4 genuine HP or Canon Printhead inkjet cartridges per recycle bag from our Ink Checker Page!
