Used Toner Recycling

In North America alone more than 350 million printer cartridges are discarded in landfills annually. This mountain of waste can be reduced through reuse and recycling. Yet approximately 70% of all ink cartridges and 50% of all toner cartridges are still not recycled.

The plastics used in printer cartridges are made of an engineering grade polymer that have a very slow decomposing rate ranging between 450 to 1,000 years depending on the cartridge type.

Recycling ink and toner cartridges reduces air and water pollution/emissions associated with landfilling, incineration or the manufacturing of new cartridges. It conserves our natural resources such as timber, water, oil/petroleum and minerals by reducing the need for raw materials. It also helps save energy. Each recycled ink cartridge saves about two ounces of oil and each recycled laser cartridge keeps two pounds of waste out of landfills.
