Printer Toner Cartridge Recycling
in ecoTech News
It’s never a good sign when the ink on 30 page document you need to have printed out starts to fade on page two. Always having a back up is the first step to having business continue on as usual, but there is always the question as to what to do with the old toner cartridge. Throwing it in the garbage may seem like a good idea at the time, but it’s definitely not the way to go.
Much like almost all electronics, there is value to old toner cartridges. Many companies take toner back at no cost, and some even give credit to purchase new toner as well! If the cartridge can be reused, it’s only a matter of filling it back up and getting it back into the market. If it is broken or cannot be refurbished, the components can be broken down and solid as commodities.
Bottom line is that there is value to just about everything. So the next time your documents start to fade when they are coming out of your printer, copier, or fax machine, be sure to give that toner cartridge a second chance!
