If your workplace, business, community group, uni or school uses more than three (3) inkjet, toner cartridges or toner bottles from our participating or supporting brands in a month you may be eligible for a free ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' collection box. Find out more about our participating and supporting brands.
To make the cartridges program as environmentally efficient as possible it‘s important that each box returns enough cartridges to justify its production and delivery. If your workplace is unlikely to return the minimum number of cartridges, we encourage you to use the drop-off boxes in our retail collection partners (participating Australia Post, Dick Smith, The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, and Officeworks stores). Find your closest drop-off box here.
