December 19, 2008, Newsletter Issue #146: How Nonprofits Are Turning Toner Cartridges Into Cash

Tip of the Week

If you’re getting rid of your old fax toner, take a moment to think about how you’re going to dispose of it. These days, the recycling trend for old toner cartridges is growing. The big printer manufacturers are getting in on the act by offering discounts and help with recycling your empty toner cartridges. But now there’s another sector on the scene capitalizing on saving the environment with empty toner cartridges.

One example is the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF), one of over 12,000 nonprofits that are turning to helping the environment as a way to also help raise funds for their programs. In a “Trash for Cash” fundraising effort, the JDRF receives support through collections of empty toner cartridges, old cell phones and used laptop computers which are dropped off at designated locations in exchange for funds.
