Our process is straightforward: collect your used cartridges, package them securely, print a free shipping label from our website, and send them to us. We take care of the rest, ensuring that your cartridges are either remanufactured or recycled responsibly.

Myth 2: Recycled Ink Cartridges Are of Lower Quality - FALSE

The Truth: The recycled ink cartridges that we remanufacture undergo rigorous testing and quality control to ensure they meet or exceed the performance of new cartridges. At Planet Green Recycle, we ensure that all remanufactured cartridges are thoroughly inspected, cleaned, refilled with high-quality ink, and tested for reliability.

Myth 3: It’s Not Worth the Effort to Recycle a Single Cartridge - FALSE

The Truth: Every cartridge counts. Recycling even a single ink cartridge can prevent it from ending up in a landfill where it can take centuries to break down.

At Planet Green Recycle, we are proud to play a role in these positive environmental outcomes.

Myth 5: Only Businesses Should Recycle Ink Cartridges - FALSE

The Truth: While businesses often generate a high volume of used ink cartridges, individuals can also make a significant difference by recycling their cartridges.
