Printer Toner Recycling
Cut Landfill. Cut Waste.
We offer a fast, free, no-hassle toner cartridge recycling service where we collect all your empty, used cartridges and send them to a specialist recycling plant.
The annual statistics are shocking...
According to the government, the UK generates almost 230m of toners & ink cartridge of waste every year, causing a huge impact on our environment and costing business across the UK an increasing amount of money.In order to reduce the amount of waste we produce, the government is moving towards a ‘zero-waste and circular economy’, meaning that it will soon be compulsory to reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible.
Here at Coast to Coast we are committed to helping our customers become as green as possible by managing their waste and reducing their carbon footprint. One simple way we can do this is by ensuring we prevent your used ink and toner cartridges from entering into landfill, by collecting then and recycling for you, ensuring that all the parts are broken down and reused rather than sent to the bin.
How can we help?
Our recycling partner collects over 800,000 ink and toner cartridges every month. Over 85% of what’s collected is remanufactured in the UK to provide cost effective alternative products, just like some products within our 5 Star range. Less than 1% of all items collected cannot be remanufactured or recycled due to damage or defect, so these will be broken down and used to make new life products, offering a full closed loop solution.
The service is free for all of our customers, so please contact us on 01903 236863 to register your company for our toner cartridge recycling service. We can send you empty boxes to put the used toners into, or you can use your own boxes – whichever is easier for you.
When the box or boxes are full up, make sure they are taped secure and let us know how many boxes you have. We’ll send you some courier labels to stick to the boxes and then the driver will be along within 2 days to come and collect them. We send them onto our recycling depot to be broken down into parts to be reused, either as new recycled toner cartridges or to make other products.

Printer Toners Recycling and the Environment
Whenever a brand new toner ink cartridge is manufactured it uses natural resources from the planet, and compared to recycled toners, uses up to 80% more energy during the production process and up to 5 litres of oil to make the plastic it is made from.
The aluminium and copper are also mined and refined for each brand new ink cartridge, so we end up using fresh materials where using recycled parts would reduce the need to do so. Dumping the used toners also adds to pollution – the ink and plastics in each toner cartridge can take up to 1000 years to break down and toner powder left inside them can drain out into the surrounding land and cause further pollution.
So wherever we can use recycled plastics we can do our bit to protect our natural resources, avoid excess production and reduce harmful emission, as well as protect our environment. By the same token sending our used toner cartridges off to be recycled rather than to landfill helps to provide the materials to drive the move away from brand new ink cartridge production
