Canon Toner Cartridge Recycling Programme

Did you know that Canon has been operating a toner cartridge recycling programme since 1990?

Canon Toner Cartridge Recycling Programme

Canon assumes responsibility for recycling and recovering 100% of the toner cartridges that customers return to us. Consideration for the environment goes into every aspect of design, beginning with the selection of materials and their configuration into products right through to the recycling of used cartridges.

What are the benefits to you?

  • Free recycling of your empty Canon toner cartridges, saving you on the cost of ordinary disposal.
  • Full regulatory compliance: All agents used by Canon hold the required licenses, giving you the peace of mind that your waste is being dealt with in the appropriate way.
  • Canon assumes responsibility for recycling and recovering 100% of the toner cartridges that customers return to us. No cartridge returned through this programme ever goes to landfill.
  • The recycling process enables parts and materials from the empty cartridge to be re-utilised in the production of new cartridges. By buying and recycling your Canon toner cartridges with us you help ensure a closed loop system and minimise our use of raw materials.

The website is not appearing properly on my screen.

The toner cartridge recycling site is developed to work with current browser versions. This means Internet Explore 6 or newer, Firefox 3.5 or newer, Google Chrome and Safari 5 or newer. JavaScript support needs to be enabled. Other browsers are likely but not guaranteed to work.

If you are having technical problems generating a label, you may request a pre-printed label through our feedback form.

Why is my cartridge not on the list of accepted cartridges?

The cartridge might not be a genuine Canon toner cartridge. If you are sure you have a genuine Canon toner cartridge that is not on the list please contact us through our feedback form quoting the cartridge model number. Canon will reply to you confirming whether your cartridge is suitable for recycling through this programme.

Does Canon offer a recycling service for other consumable products (e.g. toner bottles or ink jet cartridges)?

Canon does not offer a recycling service for toner or developer units, toner bottles or other consumables for large format printers, GP, iR, iRC, NP and CLC copiers due to the adverse environmental impacts of shipping these items. Please therefore look to dispose or recycle these products as normal office waste locally.

Is there an easy way to return many cartridges at once?

Bulk toner cartridge return is available in a number of European countries; please check your local Canon website to see if the service is available. If your country currently does not offer bulk collections please check back regularly as we are developing new services all the time.

I cannot find my country in the list, but I want to return my cartridge. How can you help me?

Unfortunately we currently do not offer a toner recycling programme in your country. Please contact your local Canon dealer to see if programmes are offered locally.

How do I clear my data from your system?

If you wish your personal data to be removed from our system please contact us through our feedback form.

I am unable to view the label that I have been sent.

If you are unable to view the label, please install the latest version of Acrobat Reader. If this still does not work, please contact us through our feedback form.

I am unable to print the label properly.

If your label does not print out as it appears on screen, this might be due to your printer drivers. Please install the latest printer drivers and try again.

I receive an error message saying that the label has already been used.

Each postage label has a unique barcode that can only be used once. Once this barcode has been registered as used on our system the link will no longer be active. Please simply revisit the recycling website and request further labels.

Can I use each label more than once?

Each postage label can only be used once as each contains a unique barcode needed for postage.

Important Information

Canon only authorises the use of this site for the return of genuine Canon toner cartridges for LBP, FAX, PFC and MFP machines. Toners for other machines cannot be returned through this programme. For these products please ensure proper disposal. The toner cartridge return programme is only operational in a selection of European countries.
