Recharge Cartridges

Why re:Refill?

Almost all inkjet and toner cartridges can either be refilled or remanufactured.?



Every year millions of empty printer cartridges are needlessly thrown away into landfill sites.

We would like to think that every aspect of our business operates in a manner that has a positive effect on the environment and recycling plays a key role in this process. There are real, tangible reasons why it is so important to “Refill and Re:charge” your empty printer cartridges.

If the empty cartridges the people of the world throw away each year were stacked end to end they would be able to circle the earth - that's over 38,400 kilometers!

More than 1.1 billion inkjet cartridges are used annually around the world - laid end to end this would be 129 times as long as the great wall of China.

Approximately 3.5 liters of oil are required to produce each new laser printer cartridge and 90 ml of oil is used to produce each inkjet cartridge. That’s nearly 10 million liters of oil used to produce the worlds inkjet cartridges per year alone.

Each discarded empty laser printer cartridge adds approximately three pounds of waste to our landfills.

The plastic used in a typical cartridge is made of engineering grade polymers and is expected to take up to 1000 years to decompose

20 - 30% of all cartridges sold worldwide are remanufactured.
