Sustainable products and services
We're constantly looking at ways to reduce the waste from our products and to help customers make environmentally preferred choices.
TerraCycle Zero Waste BoxOfficeworks is pleased to partner with TerraCycle to offer recycling solutions for hard-to-recycle products.
In Australia, many products can be recycled through local council recycling collections. However, some items, such as pens and coffee pods, cannot be recycled in kerbside bins.
With partner TerraCycle, Officeworks is pleased to provide a range of Zero Waste recycling boxes. These boxes can be used to recycle a range of items, including coffee pods, pens and other office supplies.
Simply purchase a TerraCycle Zero Waste bin, fill it with the appropriate product and then drop it at an Australia Post outlet. From there, Australia Post will send the used items to TerraCycle for recycling. The used products will be turned into a range of new products, such as outdoor furniture.
Bring IT Back
The Bring IT Back program aims to keep old computers and computer accessories out of landfill. I.T. waste collected through this program is sent to recyclers where up to 98% of the material in the devices is recovered and recycled.
Customers can bring in up to 5 items for recycling, including desktops, laptops, computer mice, monitors, printers, scanners, multifunction printers, keyboards, computer power supplies, printed circuit boards, motherboards, network cards, disks and CD drives.
Before dropping off your old equipment, please ensure that you have saved and deleted any personal data and documents from your devices. Officeworks is not able to return a product once it has been collected for recycling.
In the last twelve months, the ‘Bring IT Back’ program continues to grow in popularity, with a 30 percent increase in computers and computer accessories collected over the last year. In total, 371,871 kilograms of computer equipment for recycling was collected over the past year through the Officeworks store network.

Cartridges 4 Planet Ark
Recycling station boxes are located in all our stores so you can safely recycle your used ink and toner cartridges. Recycling ink and toner cartridges diverts waste from landfill, saves water and energy, and reduces greenhouse gases.
Since 2005, Officeworks has been involved in the Cartridges 4 Planet Ark program. In the past 12 months, Officeworks became the first company in Australia to collect more than five million printer cartridges for recycling. Last year, 889,045 printer cartridges were collected through Officeworks' store network.
Officeworks is a proud partner of the Mobile Muster program - the Australian mobile phone industry's official product stewardship program. Working together with Mobile Muster, this free recycling service aims to keep old mobile phones, batteries and accessories out of landfill, and recycle them to the highest environmental standards. By recycling your mobile, you're avoiding future greenhouse gas emissions, saving energy, protecting the environment and conserving scarce natural resources. Officeworks also supports the Mobile Muster Schools Recycling Challenge which aims to inform, educate and engage kids and schools in recycling.
In the past twelve months, MobileMuster' collections, which recycle mobile phones, increased by 40 percent to 4,358 kilograms, the equivalent of 57,000 handsets and batteries.
BatterybackTM is a free service for customers to drop off, old, flat and unwanted single-use and rechargeable batteries for recycling at ten Officeworks retail stores in Victoria.

Officeworks has been involved with the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) since 2008.
