If every office and home recycled everything that they could, our environment would benefit greatly. If you want to help as much as you can, recycle everything in your printing process that you can. You can recycle almost everything from the ink cartridge to the paper from extra prints. If you have a non-refillable ink cartridge, do not throw away your ink cartridge when it is empty. Do the responsible thing and recycle your ink cartridge casing. At the very least, you can always place your empty ink cartridge in your everyday plastic recycling bin.
The same container that you place empty soda bottles in serves as a way to recycle ink cartridges when they run dry. At best, you should look for a company that specializes in remanufacturing ink cartridges. If you cannot find one that remanufactures, look for one that will recycle the ink cartridge casing by using the plastics in other products. The ink cartridge casing is made of non-biodegradable plastic and without recycling will be on this earth long after you have printed your last print.
