At Grimco, providing our industry with education and access to sustainable solutions is extremely important. A common question we receive from our customers is "Can we recycle our ink cartridges?". Luckily, all of our printer manufacturers have a recycling program or sustainable options. Find your printer brand below and learn how you can start recycling your inks and consumables!

Mimaki

Commitment to Eco-Friendly Printing Systems and Consumables  

Mimaki has options when ordering for several ink setups, some of which can eliminate the need for cartridges and reduce the amount of plastic needed to operate your printer!

Some of our customers have found that outside parties also have ink recycling options, although they do vary by company in policy and what inks they are able to accept. 

 


There are now more options than ever before to increase sustainability and reduce waste and its impact on the environment! Together, we can make a difference!
