When your toner is finished do you simply toss it into your bin or you really don’t know what happens to it? Well, every year millions of empty old toner cartridges are disposed into the trash ending up in landfills.
Toner cartridges are made from polymer grade plastic making them among the most environmentally damaging items that people normally throw away. The toner or ink inside the cartridge leaches into the water or soil thereby polluting the environment for many years to come.
Fortunately, there are better ways to handle them as toner cartridges are both reusable and recyclable.
Reuse your cartridges
Every single cartridge you reuse is one less which goes to landfill. One single cartridge can be remanufactured/reused upto 5-6 times , while delivering the same print quality and page output as expected from brand new printer cartridge. Yes, you can expect the same reliability as a brand new cartridge , as long as you buy from a reputable manufacturer.
There is a lot of competition in the aftermarket printer cartridge industry and with that, you get varying degree of quality and reliability. To find a good provider, you will want to take the time to do some research. A high number of positive reviews on the product backed by excellent customer service are two signs of solid manufacturer.

Give it back to the manufacturer
Many toner cartridge makers offers their customers a buy back option against collection of empty cartridges. You give it for free and get green points in return which can be redeemed as cash discount in next purchase.
