Welcome to the Mencap Recycling Page
Mencap is the UK’s leading learning disability charity. We work with people with a learning disability to change laws, challenge prejudice and support them to live their lives as they choose.
Below are a few examples of how recycling empty inkjets could make a difference to someone with a learning disability:
- £5 a month could pay towards a community adviser giving victims of disability hate crime the confidence they need to talk to the police
- £10 could help provide a training session for someone to learn how to use public transport on their own
- £20 could help pay for an advice pack for families who have just found out that their new baby has a learning disability
- £30 could help to train a nurse to develop the specialist skills needed to care for someone with a learning disability living with an incurable illness
Mencap’s vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued equally, listened to and included. With your help, Mencap can achieve this – thank you for your support!

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.
