    Used Ink Cartridges.

    Used Ink Cartridges. 10th Jan 18 at 5:09 PM
    I have a large number of used HP cartridges: genuine HP 364XL, all 5 colours. I used to recycle them to a company which sent me large envelopes and gave a proportion of profits to the NSPCC, but they have stopped trading. I live near Louth, Lincs and also started giving them to a school, but they have stopped recycling. I don't know of anywhere else. Anyone know of anywhere that takes them? I would like them to benefit a charity or a school.
    I think this job really needs
    a much bigger hammer.

    You could request recycling envelopes from HP:

    Thanks for the advice. I would like them to benefit a charity, specifically the NSPCC, but any good charity would be OK. The supermarket collection bins are not charity-based.. I tried the HP link some time ago, nothing happened after I requested envelopes.

    I will keep looking.

    You could sell them on Ebay and make a donation to charity; I think if you specify in the listing that the money made from the sale is going to charity I think they may reduce their fees, not sure though.

    My local council tip / recycling centre has bins for recycling used ink cartridges, amongst many other things and gives proceeds to NSPCC !
    I would check your local tip....
