ZERO WASTE

Other recycling services may dispose of your cartridges in landfill or incineration. Have you ever asked what they do with the ones they can’t reuse? Many services play on the word “recycling” without fully providing the service advertised.

This is where we are different. Here at Zero Waste Recycling, you get exactly what you pay for - a comprehensive recycling service that adheres to the principles of the Waste Hierarchy. We understand your corporate responsibility and duty of care to the environment, and we will only recycle or reuse your waste cartridges - nothing gets disposed of into incineration or landfill.

Book a collection with us and let us handle your waste responsibly.

GET REBATES FOR REUSABLE CARTRIDGES

If you use a lot of high quality OEM cartridges, such as HP, Lexmark, Samsung, etc., you can select the pricing model “High Base Cost, Offset by Rebates” during the registration process.

Using this price model you will receive credit rebates for reusable cartridges to offset the cost of your future orders. This may work out cheaper using our service or even using it for free each time. You will also have the opportunity to donate these rebates to a charity of your choice.

Reusable Cartridges

have a value as they are the main component in making a new remanufactured cartridge. We do not need to treat these cartridges, just sort and repair them for reuse.

Non Reusable Cartridges

cannot be reused as they are either uneconomical, broken, or cannot be remanufactured. They cost more to process back into their raw material form compared to reuse.

Rule of Thumb


Original cartridge – probably reusable
Remanufactured cartridge – may be reusable
Compatible cartridge: definitely non reusable

Because of this we are happy to rebate you for reusable cartridges that have a market value.

  • You can use rebates against future collections or donate them to a charity of your choice
  • Some cartridges are worth more than others so we use a sliding scale for rebate
  • Once registered, you can view the rebate list to see how much your cartridges are worth
  • If you are part of a collection pool, your rebates are not applied to your account directly, but applied to the collection pool as a whole

We fulfil your obligations simply and easily, no matter what size or shape your organisation is by providing Waste Transfer Notes and a Zero Waste Certificate which is your proof that none of your printer cartridge waste went into incineration or landfill.
