Inkjet printer cartridge recycling

Recyling factory logoYou can donate to the Scottish SPCA by recycling your used inkjet cartridges. What a great way to be eco-friendly and help Scotland's animals at the same time!

Find out here if your cartridges are eligible for the scheme.

If your cartridges are listed and you would like to send them to us, download a freepost label and attach to your packaging. Please note that the freepost weight limit is 1kg. If you have multiple items and think you may exceed this weight limit, you may have to split them into smaller packages. 

Recycling in larger volumes

If you are looking to recycle in larger volumes, such as quantities of 100 or more inkjet cartridges, first check that the items you intend to send in are accepted by The Recycling Factory.

If your items are eligible, please email The Recycling Factory team to set up a free Scottish SPCA recycling account. Once your account is in place, you will be able to access instructions on how to arrange a free courier collection. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to receive a donation for laser toner cartridges. However, if you have a large number of toners you are interested in recycling, please contact The Recycling Factory on 0800 091 0696 or by email for further information. The Recycling Factory can only take selected original toners and therefore will require a list of the makes and models you wish to recycle.

New! Car recycling

Recycling carYou can now donate your old car and raise vital funds!

We've teamed up with Giveacar, a non-profit social enterprise which collects unwanted and unused cars for charity.

This is an easy, cost-free free way to get rid of your old car while helping us rescue and rehome thousands of animals each year.

Regardless of their condition, cars will be collected free of charge and then either sold through an online auction or disposed of at an authorised treatment facility.

Profits from the sale will then be donated to us. Even if a car is scrapped, it could still raise between £40 and £250, which would make a big difference to the lives of the animals we care for.

For more information or to donate a car please call 0207 736 4242.
