Want to know instantly what your office's empty printer cartridges are worth when you recycle them? It's easy, just visit GreenTech's new printer cartridge recycling website. Visitors to the GreenTech website just need to enter their printer cartridge numbers and the website will show how much GreenTech will pay. They will even send a courier to come pick them up from the customer's offices, all for free.
When the printer cartridges have been inspected at GreenTech's recycling facility in Peterborough, they will check they are in good enough condition to be recycled and remanufactured for resale. Customers will get a cheque in the post within 5 days. The courier pick-up service is free, they even send you the labels to stick on your box/es of printer cartridges.
So what's the catch? Well GreenTech call this a 'bulk' recycling service, which means they can only accept cartridges that are worth at least £20 per request. As GreenTech's founder and CEO Sohail Sethi says "For any business, charity, school or Government agency it only makes economic sense for us to offer a free courier pick-up if we will be able to recoup the costs of recycling. That means we are targeting organisations who have several inkjet or laser printers and maybe one or two photocopiers." Of course, not all printer cartridges have any recycle value due to low market demand for the particular remanufactured cartridges, but GreenTech will also gladly recycle those of little or no value as long as customers hit the minimum value of £20 per request.
GreenTech have been recycling and remanufacturing laser, inkjet, fax and photocopier cartridges for the last 8 years at their facility in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. The company recycles upwards of 25,000 cartridges per month and then resells them as "Recycled Originals" via several partner websites. The team at GreenTech's printer cartridge recycling facility estimate to have saved the equivalent of 5 million litres of oil or 120 football pitches worth of landfill.
