At Wholesale Toners Australia we are aware of the impact our business can have on the environment. We sell thousands of printer cartridges and laser cartridges each week.

To reduce our footprint and that of our customers we are involved in a recycling partnership with Eccosave.

Eccosave is a non-profit organisation with the purpose to protect the natural environment, motivate and educate both individuals and businesses on the importance of recycling and protecting our environment.

Why recycle cartridges?

Printer cartridges are part of a growing the electronic waste problem estimated at 50 million tonnes each year. Made up of plastics, metals, electronics, foam and ink, printer cartridges contribute to the problem in a massive way and represent a very large problem for Australia and the world.

It is estimated that more than 500 million laser cartridges and 1.8 billion ink cartridges have been dumped in landfills which can take up to 1000 years to decompose.

Recycling cartridges can also recover valuable resources which can be used to produce other products, help save water and energy and reduce green house gasses from being released into the atmosphere. Start thinking towards the future and help Wholesale Toner reduce this problem by recycling your old cartridges.

How Can I recycle?

Leading printer manufactures such as Brother, Epson, Canon, HP, Lexmark and Konica Minolta are involved in the recycling process, and Wholesale Toner is also doing its part.

In order to be involved in the process, please send us your old cartridges and we will do the rest. You can post them to:

Wholesale Toner Australia
Unit 6/53 Township Drive
West Burleigh QLD 4219

Po Box 251, West Burleigh QLD 4219

What happens to the cartridges after I send them?

The cartridges collected are then sorted and where possible components are re-used, this saves precious resources otherwise consumed by the creation of new cartridges. If they are not suitable for re-use they are recycled, this prevents them from ending up as landfill.

We are currently developing a range of outdoor products from the recycled cartridges.
