Empties Please Printer Cartridge Recycling

Help your school or charity to become greener by recycling ink cartridges and raise funds.

At Empties Please we specialise in recycling printer cartridges. We’ll collect your used cartridges and donate the money raised back to your school.

Our aim is to help schools raise funds and to encourage the next generation to get greener.

Alongside raising school funds we also run an ‘Eco Project’ designed to get your pupils outside and learning about their local environment and wildlife. As well as every ‘£1’ you raise we give you ‘1 Green Point’ these points can be redeemed for ‘Green Goodies’ for your school, anything from seed packs to adopting an endangered animal!

Cartridges can be collected from anywhere, school, home, work, clubs, friends and family.

If parents would like to take a bin to work on behalf of your school we can supply a pack for them to do so. This is a great way of boosting the money you raise. You could also ask local businesses to display a bin for you, do you have a local shop, bank or business that could help?

Empties Please is COMPLETELY FREE TO RUN. We’ll send you everything you need to start your recycling. Your recycle bins and recycle bags for the pupils to take home will be sent once your account is set up. You’ll also receive a welcome email with your ‘welcome pack’ attached.

- Beaudersert Lower School, Leighton Buzzard
We are Beaudesert Lower School in Leighton Buzzard Bedfordshire, and have been registered with Empties Please since 2012. The whole recycling process is very easy to use, from registration through to returning the boxes of cartridges and then getting payment. We have placed our collection box in the school foyer and have some posters on the wall telling parents which cartridges can be recycled. We also send out flyers bi-annually in all the children’s bags to remind the parents that we are collecting and that anything donated can really help the school finances. 

To date we have raised just short of £626.85! In 2014 we redeemed our green points and ordered a giant butterfly tower for the school and we are using our last cheque to help fund a Xmas Panto trip for the whole school this December.
