Recycle your printer cartridges

Mira Header Cartouches

Help Mira and the planet

Since 1996, Mira has been committed to educating the Quebec general public about the recycling of printer cartridges and cell phones. As well as representing concrete action for the environment, this initiative funds the training of many Mira dogs.

A two-part program

The laser printer and inkjet cartridge recycling program is aimed at both businesses and individuals in Canada and helps to protect the environment and fund a Mira dog.

How the program works

Signing up

Those interested in contributing to Mira's funding through cartridge recycling must fill in a pick up form. Cartridge collection is for a minimum of 10 laser cartridges. If the number is less, you must go to one of the drop-off points located across Canada.

Free pick up service

On a simple call from you, Mira picks up your cartridges previously packed in a box and well identified if you wish to obtain a tax receipt. Our pick up service is free.


All cartridges transit through the Mira Foundation warehouse in Neuville. They are sorted and sold through a tender process. Non-recyclable cartridges are destroyed responsibly. The cardboard and plastic of the parcels will also be recycled.
