Recycling Your Toner Cartridges

It’s easy to recycle your toner and fax cartridges. Just follow the instructions printed on the cartridge or included in the packaging. Most toner cartridges can be sent back to the manufacturer for recycling (there may be a pre-paid shipping label). There are also several local companies that recycle toner cartridges. Most toner containers can be recycled along with no. 1 to 7 plastics, so you can just recycle them along with your other mixed plastics. Toner cartridge recycling information links:
