Ink Cartridge Recycling


Sigma Launch New solution for Ink toner cartridge recycling.

In response to customers growing demand for the sustainable destruction of printing consumables, The Sigma IT Recycling team have developed a new Ink Cartridge and Toner cartridge recycling scheme.


The new service aims to identify reusable cartridges before they arrive in local waste streams.


Neil Bredonchel IT recycling Co-ordinator for Sigma said ‘In conjunction with our customers and main suppliers we have already exported hundreds of toner cartridges for recycling, but I think this is only a small percentage of the available waste stream. Jersey residents discard 100,000 tonnes of rubbish every year, with non-recyclable waste making its way to the energy recycling plant at La Collette. We hope that by providing a service to separate reusable toners and ship them to specialists in the UK, Sigma can play a small part in maintaining environmental sustainability in the island. We hope that responsible businesses will be keen to support the scheme and recycle as many toner cartridges as possible”.


Any business wishing to join the scheme should contact the Sigma recycling team on T: 711532 or E: neil.bredonchel@sigmaci.com. Sigma will provide the business with a collection box that holds approximately 20 average sized cartridges. Sigma will then collect the full box at a charge of £30 which covers some of the processing costs involved.


Any toners that can be refilled and reused are separated and sent to specialist recyclers in the UK. All remaining toners will be recycled within local waste streams. The cost of exporting the reusable cartridges will be met by Sigma.


Robert Sillars the CEO of Sigma said ‘Most office waste can be recycled, and it is important that local businesses take responsibility for their waste and reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible. Toner cartridges are a key waste stream for many businesses and can contain potentially toxic residues, so this project is exciting as it helps local businesses, and the environment”
