Wondering where to recycle toner cartridges? Look no further: First Mile recycles all types of toners and printer cartridges!

It’s estimated that over 1.1 billion toner cartridges are used every year around the world, of which 350 million end up in landfills where they can take between 450 and 1000 years to breakdown, releasing harmful gases during this time. That's not ok.

People can reduce landfilling by recycling printer cartridges and toner. Remanufacturing these items can save over 38,000 tons of plastic and metal from landfills. Sounds good, right?

Our printer toner recycling service gives these products a second chance to stay in use, avoiding further burdens on landfill.

If any cartridge is damaged beyond recovery, we send them to be shredded, so materials are separated and recycled into other products. As a last alternative, non-recoverable toners are sent to generate green energy used to heat homes in the UK.

Cartridge recycling doesn’t need to cause a headache. Recycle your toners and cartridges today!
