Canon InkJet Cartridges Recycling Program

Canon Europe announced in February 19, the European rollout of its inkjet cartridges recycling program which follows "the successful completion of an extensive one year trial recycling program in the UK and Germany."

Canon Inkjet Cartridges Recycling Program will be available in 15 European countries including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K. Canon printer users can simply contact the nearest Canon outlets and ask how they can send their empty Canon inkjet cartridges for the said program.

According to Canon's official press release:

"Canon’s inkjet recycling scheme allows customers to recycle genuine Canon inkjet cartridges for free and ensures 100% of each cartridge is diverted from landfill. More than 97% of each cartridge is reused and recycled into other products with the remaining 3% being used to generate energy from waste.

In order to participate, customers can visit a dedicated area on the Canon website and select their home country. After completing a quick and easy form, Canon will supply freepost return envelopes in which the cartridges can be returned for recycling.

The scheme once again demonstrates Canon’s on-going commitment to reducing its environmental impact. The company already runs a successful toner cartridge recycling scheme in 20 countries (16 in Europe). This has been in existence since 1990 and has resulted in the collection of more than 287,000 tonnes of toner cartridges globally, saving 185,000 tonnes of new raw materials and 430,000 tonnes of CO2."
