Clover Environmental Solutions (“CES”) provides a printer cartridge recycling program (the “Program”) that allows you to return the printer cartridges identified on the qualifying list located at (“Qualifying Items”) for remanufacturing or recycling. Any item that is not a Qualifying Item is referred to in these terms as a “Non-Qualifying Item”.


The list of Qualifying Items and Recycling Fee schedule found below may be modified by CES, in CES’s sole discretion. You are strongly encouraged to review the qualifying list before sending in each shipment. Any updates to the list of Qualifying Items or Recycling Fee schedule will become effective on January 1, April 1, July 1, or October 1 of each year.

Please carefully review the following Program terms (the “Terms”). You must accept the Terms in order to register for and participate in the Program.

By establishing an account, you hereby confirm that you are an authorized representative of the entity you are enrolling in the Program (the “Participant”) and are authorized to enroll the Participant, authorize additional users (if any), and agree to the Program Terms on Participant’s behalf. Participation in the Program is subject to the following Terms, which may be updated from time to time at the sole discretion of Clover Environmental Solutions (“CES”). By registering for the Program, you acknowledge that you have read these Terms and agree, on behalf of Participant, to be bound and abide by these Terms, our Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions, found at and incorporated herein by reference. Should you object to any term or condition of these Terms, any guideline, or any subsequent modification thereto, your only recourse is to immediately discontinue participating in the Program.

Participant must designate a coordinator (the "Coordinator") to manage Participant’s use of the Program. Participant's account and credits may be accessed only by means of the username and password of the Coordinator designated for the Participant's account. CES shall be entitled to rely absolutely and conclusively on all transactions, including authorization of additional users, if any, undertaken or authorized by means of the username and password of the Participant's Coordinator and all such transactions shall be binding on the Participant.

Payment Method

To participate in the Program, you must have internet access, establish a Participant account at, and provide CES’s payment processing partner with one or more Payment Methods. “Payment Method” means a current, valid, accepted method of payment, such as a credit card.

Additional Users

Participants who are office product dealers may be eligible to authorize their customers to participate in the program under the dealer’s account by authorizing such customers as additional users under the Participant’s account. Additional users will be given their own username and set their own password, but will not be required to provide a Payment Method. As such, all Program Credits earned or Recycling Fees incurred by an additional authorized user will be credited or charged to the Participant account with which the additional user is associated. Participants will have the option to limit each additional user’s access to certain Program features, but ultimately any Participant that authorizes additional users will be responsible for all of such additional user’s activity under the Program, including payment of any Recycling Fees incurred, and Participant hereby affirmatively agrees to accept financial responsibility for all such additional user activity. Accounts that authorize additional users are strongly encouraged to ensure their additional users are familiar with these Terms, the difference between Qualifying and Non-Qualifying items, and the credits/charges associated with each.
