UPDATE: Many Staples stores are accepting carts/toners for recycling now. Call ahead to check before making the trip or mailing in your recycles for May. YMMV
-c2nah777

To participate in online cartridge recycling program please follow these steps:
1. Log onto staples.com/rewards
2. Navigate and click on "Recycling Ink & toner" in the Quick Link menu
3. Follow steps to "Recycle Ink & Toner Online"
a. Verify or edit your shipping information.
b. Request and print labels.

A minimum of 5 empty cartridges is required for each label and boxed shipped. Consolidating cartridges reduces packaging waste and saves fuel. If less than 5 cartridges are shipped in 1 box, future shipments will not be accepted.

----------------------------------------
Send all you need to in one box...not just 5. 5 is the minimum. The maximum is based on your account. Business Plus members can send up to 20 in one box. Regular accounts can send up to 10.

Read the thread for more tips about the issues they have with proper counting and the measures you can take to help you fight for your proper credit later if necessary. -c2nah777

Just a warning to others. Staples mail in recycling is notoriously unreliable... However, given the current climate, it is better than nothing.

Who wants to gamble and wait until the end of the month when its Earth Day to see if they do another double ink recycling offer? laugh out loud

Earth Day is towards the end of April which is the month I was referring to. No, I meant Staples. They did double ink rewards for America Recycles Day 2019. Those who recycled too early in the month did not get double rewards.

Agreed. Every time I give mail-in recycling a chance I always end up regretting it. It's guaranteed that you'll need to call customer service to request an account credit.

As for the suspension of in-store recycling, do you happen to know if it's a nationwide policy or a store-by-store one?

Corp sent out memos to all the stores. YMMV on cashiers enforcing it. I imagine most stores will not allow recycling (or shredding). A lot of the cashiers are pissed they have to work and that Staples considers itself "essential" when all of their TP, PT and sanitizer has been sold out for weeks.

Never mailed in cartridges before. Is there a way to track your ink when u mail it in? How quickly do they usually post to the account?

All of which can be ordered online and delivered within a day or two from Staples... My comment was in reference to how Staples associates feel about corp making them stay open.
