Welcome to the waste directory - Printer cartridges
What can be recycled?
All laser toners are acceptable.
All inkjet cartridges are acceptable but may be dealt with in different ways.
Any unused items (which may have been purchased in error) can be offered to others in the College (or elsewhere) on the Waste Action Re-use Portal (WARPit). It is easy to register and the system is very easy to use.
There is a legal requirement to recycle printer cartridges so these must not be placed in the general waste.
What is included?
- Used Inkjet cartridges
- Used Laser toners
- Cartridge packaging
- Unused cartridges and toners

Printer cartridge recycling locations - Other Campuses
Who empties the printer cartridge bin?
- The Soft Services Support Team (South Kensington) or cleaning team (elsewhere) will empty the bins when required.
- Full containers are stored in a locked compound ready for collection by a specialist recycler.
What happens then?
- The items are cleaned, refilled and re-used (or recycled where this is not possible).
How green is this waste stream?
- All receptacles are recycled/re-used.
- Everything that you recycle is put to good use. Your recycling prevents needless use of landfill sites or incineration. You are helping to protect and improve the environment.
