February 24, 2006, Newsletter Issue #5: Toner Cartridge Recycling Programs

Tip of the Week

To reduce the waste created by offices and schools around the globe, many companies and organizations have begun toner cartridge recycling programs. Toner cartridges account for more waste than most could imagine and it makes sense when you consider how much printing occurs in our daily lives. Toner cartridge recycling programs are popping up in many places and here is where to look for them.

First, if you have a school or university in your area, there is a great chance that they offer toner cartridge recycling. Simply contact the administration and inquire if they accept toner cartridges from the public for recycling. If they do not, your next place to look would be your local government.

As a toner cartridge contains chemicals that are not best to recycle with plain plastic, some areas have specific drop places for toner cartridge recycling. Contact your local utility carrier to inquire. Many online remanufacturers of toner cartridges will also take your empty toner cartridge. You can find their websites and contact information easily by searching the web, and many will provide you with discounted pricing on new toner cartridges in exchange. Do what you can to help reduce waste by recycling your toner cartridge the next time it runs out.
