The disposal of non-refundable ink cartridges is free of charge, regardless of the quantity.

For the disposal of toner bottles, waste toner containers and non-original toner cartridges (e.g. alternative brands, NoNames, replicas, refill or rebuild) a disposal fee of €1.19 per unit (incl. VAT) will be charged.

A disposal fee of €1.79 per kilogram (incl. VAT) is charged for the disposal of other types of waste (e.g. handsets of landline telephones, analogue cameras, batteries or other electronic waste).

Purchase prices

Empty printer cartridges are not rubbish, but often worth cash! Profit from our ink + toner purchase.

We always buy at the conditions of the valid purchase price list. The amount of compensation depends on the purchase price list valid at the time of arrival of the printer cartridges, toner cartridges or recyclable materials. The purchase prices can vary from month to month. All purchase prices are in Euro.

For recycling and empties dealers our purchase prices are only valid after prior consultation. Deliveries from recyclers and dealers in empties must always be announced in writing in advance and require our confirmation of purchase. In the case of larger quantities of empty printer cartridges, toner cartridges or drums, we reserve the right to refuse acceptance or to limit it to our requirements accordingly.
