Toner cartridges are the part of an office printer that carry the ink (or toner). Recycling these plastic cartridges is more complicated than tossing them in the recycling bin because of the traces of ink in them. However, several places that sell ink cartridges will take them back and recycle them.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Often, printer supply companies will give money for used cartridges because they can be refilled, which saves the company from having to manufacture as many new ones.
For New Orleans
Recycling toner cartridges reduces the amount of non-biodegradable plastic taking up space and leaching chemicals into the city’s landfills.
