Save Resources – the recycling center of KMP.

In Europe, as many as 250 million empty inkjet and toner cartridges are disposed of as household waste every year. But for us, they are valuable raw materials. Our »Save Resources« Recycling Center not only collects these empty products but also puts them to use for charity.

Collect empty printer cartridges and do some good – This is how it works:

1. Collect empty cartridges

Collect empty ink and/or toner cartridges. The easiest way to do this is to use our free collecting boxes, which can be ordered from us online or via your contact person in our internal sales department: big-sized box, item no. A009,0000 (approx. 36 x 55 x 70 cm), or small-sized box, item no. A010,0000 (approx. 38 x 38 x 54 cm).

2. Prepare and arrange for pickup

Register your consignment of empty products at with our pickup form. Choose whether you would like to receive a refund for the value of the empty items or donate it to an organisation belonging to the KMP charitable initiative. Arrange for pickup of your consignment directly with our logistics partner DHL.

3. Your consignment of empty cartridges will be examined

Your consignment will be checked for quantity and damages. We can only refund empty toner and ink cartridges that can be recycled. You will be sent an acknowledgement of receipt.

4. Refund or donation

If you would like to donate the value of the empty cartridges, we will provide the amount directly to your chosen organisation. If you wish a refund, simply send us an invoice for the amount shown in the acknowledgement of receipt.

The KMP charitable initiative

Anyone, who uses a printer can contribute to our initiative simply and at no cost to themselves. This initiative profits from the donated refunds from our Save Resources collections of empty printer cartridges. At the moment, there are four organisations affiliated with the initiative: the German Childhood Cancer Foundation »Deutsche Kinderkrebsstiftung«, terre des hommes Deutschland, the German Diabetes Foundation »Deutsche Diabetesstiftung« and the relief organisation »Apotheker helfen e. V.« which is the »German Pharmacists’ Aid« operated by the Bavarian Pharmacists. These additional funds are immensely helpful for completing various relief projects.
