Recycle with RNIB

An environmentally friendly way to help us raise funds.

How your used ink cartridges help

We receive up to £4.50 for each used printer cartridge recycled and so far our supporters have helped to raise a fantastic £385,000!

Be green and recycle for RNIB

Recycling is a great way to raise funds to help us support people with sight loss, while also helping to protect the environment. Taking part in the scheme couldn’t be easier, simply:

  • Put your recyclable items in an envelope or box (a list of eligible cartridges can be found The Recycling Factory website)
  • Download our freepost label and attach it to your own envelope/package (max weight 1kg)
  • Freepost your package to The Recycling Factory.

If you have any problems downloading and printing the label, email [email protected] or call our Fundraising Team on 0345 345 0054 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm)

Box collections

If you have a large number of inkjet cartridges to recycle for us, please call The Recycling Factory on 0800 091 0696 or email [email protected].

What we can't recycle

Unfortunately we can't recycle everything, so please do not include:

  • Laser toner cartridges
  • Toner bottles
  • Ribbon cartridges
  • Compatible or Re-filled cartridges

Thank you for your support, we look forward to receiving your used ink cartridges!

And don't forget, we also recycle used stamps too.
