Eco-Friendly Return Programs

Posted by on 3/9/2020 to Blog

At Superior Ink & Toner, our mission is to keep Canada green. When you own a printer, it is inevitable that you will have empty cartridges. Ink and toner cartridges take a long time to break down when disposed of in the landfill due to all the chemicals inside.

Rather than throwing them away, recycling them through our return program is a great way to make your contribution to being more sustainable. When you recycle used cartridges, they are then used to make new ones. This reduces the resources required when making new ones! It’s a win-win situation for everyone!

How Many Cartridges are Thrown Out Every Year?

Did you know that more than 375 million empty cartridges are thrown away every year and end up in landfills? Did you also know that it can take up to 1000 years just for the cartridge to decompose? This is why it is important to recycle and do your part in helping the environment.

Our Recycling Process

At Superior Ink & Toner, we offer a recycling process that is quick and easy for you. If you order cartridges from us, upon delivery we will take your empty cartridges to recycle them at no extra cost to you in efforts to keep the empties from being dumped into a landfill. 


If you aren’t located nearby and we do not deliver personally to your location but instead ship you ink and toner by courier, you are able to send back your empties. This saves you the trouble of having to take your empty cartridges to a recycling center.
