Welcome to The Centre for Alternative Technology Recycling Page
The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) is an education and visitor centre which demonstrates practical solutions for sustainability. We cover all aspects of green living: environmental building, eco-sanitation, woodland management, renewable energy, energy efficiency and organic growing.
We have a holistic approach to our work, integrating ideas and practice relating to land use, shelter, energy conservation and use, diet and health, waste management and recycling.
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.
If you would like to recycle laser toner cartridges, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested in recycling in large volumes?
If you are looking to recycle in larger volumes i.e. quantities of 100 or more inkjet cartridges, or quantities of more than 20 laser toner cartridges, you must ensure that your cartridges are accepted on the scheme. If you have any questions about whether or not your items are eligible, please email The Recycling Factory Team at email@example.com.
