The Recycling Factory is a division of Dynamic Cassette International (DCI) based in Boston, Lincolnshire.

The Recycling Factory

As the industry’s largest UK recycling company, The Recycling Factory collects over 8 million inkjet and toner cartridges each year whilst upholding its commitment to zero landfill, which ensures that products are disposed of in an ethical and environmentally friendly way.

The Recycling Factory collects and recycles inkjet cartridges through various collection schemes. All items are processed on-site; any items that they are unable to recycle are broken down so that the items can be disposed of ethically.

Save the environment

Millions of cartridges are simply thrown away each year. Some of these items contain hazardous materials that can take years to decompose and have a negative affect on our environment. By collecting and recycling these materials, The Recycling Factory can stop them going to landfill and help save the environment.

By recycling your empty cartridges, you too could be helping the environment. If you are interested in recycling your inkjet cartridges, you can raise additional revenue for yourself or help raise vital funds for a charity of your choice.

As the company has a zero landfill policy, it is essential that the inkjet cartridges you send are those which are on its recycling lists. If you are an individual recycling for cash you will need to check against the list of recyclable inkjet cartridges as to whether or not your items have any value.

If you are interested in recycling for charity, please check the individual charity pages for details of the inkjet cartridges The Recycling Factory can recycle. If you are interested in recycling toner cartridges, please email with a list of the makes and models you wish to recycle. Please note that recycling lists are updated on or around the 1st of each month
