Welcome to the Age UK Sheffield Recycling Page
There are thousands of older people in Sheffield who go for days without speaking to another person. Many more who struggle to pay bills, heat their homes and even to get the food they need to stay healthy. Worst of all these people are invisible as they are stuck behind closed doors where the public cannot see them. We think older people deserve to do more than just survive. We believe a decent quality of life is not too much to ask for.
Age UK Sheffield is an independent, local organisation dedicated to supporting older people in Sheffield, particularly those who are vulnerable or isolated. We work to help older people in Sheffield to retain their independence and get the most out of life. The services we provide range from information and advice to in-depth complex casework, supporting older people in Sheffield with life-changing issues such as poverty, isolation, ill-health, care and housing.
As a local organisation we are best placed to understand and respond to the needs of the people we exist to help. Like other charities we rely on donations and fundraising to allow us to continue to provide these vital services.

The recycling scheme is completely free of charge and 100% of the value of all inkjet cartridges successfully recycled will be donated to this charity. There are certain cartridges which are eligible for the charity scheme, so please ensure that you check to see if yours is listed.
If your inkjet cartridge is listed and you would like to send it into us, please click on the freepost downloadable label below and affix to your own packaging. Please note that the freepost weight limit is 1kg; if you have multiple items and think that you may exceed this weight limit, you may have to split them into smaller packages.
