The collection of inkjet and laser cartridges, how does it work?

"From its manufacture to its end of life, every product we consume has an impact on the environment: on water, air, soil, biodiversity, climate change... To limit them, everyone has a role to play. Manufacturers and industrialists, farmers, distributors, public authorities... but also the consumers that we are."

Why recycle your inkjet and laser cartridges?

You are a company and you don’t know what to do with your empty cartridges?

Do you know that only 30 to 40% of used cartridges are treated properly?

With the ESR collection, we guarantee the return and sorting of your Laser and Inkjet cartridges. Thus all reusable cartridges will be sorted, cleaned and passed on to our partner in order to enter a new cartridge production cycle. They are then remanufactured cartridges.

This means that instead of considering your cartridges as waste, we give them value again!

Since August 2018, print cartridges are considered as WEEE of “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment”, so cartridges must be collected and treated in accordance with the obligations arising from this.

Delivery of collection's boxes and request for removal

We deliver dedicated boxes for the collection of your Inkjet or Laser cartridges. Reinforced boxes that allow you to properly receive and store empty cartridges. Arrange them within your company near your printers or at a strategic point.

Once your box is full (between 15 and 20 laser cartridges for a maximum of 20Kg or about 100 inkjet cartridges minimum depending on the size of the box chosen), make a request for collection from your Customer Area. We collect the boxes from your address within 24 to 72 hours.

Arrange for removal


Inkjet and Laser ESR cartridge collection is just the beginning of a new story… your cartridge hasn’t said its last word!

Used cartridges are sorted after collection. Cartridges are first checked, so reusable cartridges are remanufactured to be put back on the market!

Within one month from the removal of your used cartridges, Exertis provides a Waste Tracking Certificate, available from your Personal Space. This document certifies Exertis’ commitment to collect and recycle your used cartridges.
