Cartridges 4 Planet Ark - Printer Cartridge Recycling

Council provides two locations to drop off your used printer cartridges. Cartridges 4 Planet Ark collection boxes are located at both Council Administration Offices in Laidley and Gatton.

Printer cartridges are made up of a complex combination of plastics, metals, foam, ink and toner.  Throwing them into landfill represents a waste of resources and contributes to the growing problem of electronic waste. By recycling your cartridges, you are helping to reduce this waste.

For more information on this program, visit the Cartridges 4 Planet Ark website.

DrumMuster

This program is for the collection of empty, clean, farm containers that carry the DrumMuster sticker. Only containers with the DrumMuster sticker are able to be recycled through this program. No fees are charged as the cost is included in the original purchase of these containers.

Collection Points:

  • Grantham Transfer Station
  • Lockyer Waters Transfer Station
  • Laidley Transfer Station
  • Gatton Transfer Station

See the Waste Disposal Facilities page for locations and operational hours.
