Printer & Toner Cartridges

Inkjet printer cartridges can be quite easily recycled – many areas have local businesses that will refill cartridges for you, so you can take them along to be refilled yourself. If you don’t want to do that, there are also many charities and organisations that collect used cartridges to help them raise funds. Perhaps your local school collects them to raise extra funds.  Many charities collect them too, and these can often easily be donated to one of their shops.

If all else fails, you may find that you can take them to your local recycling centre.

Toner Cartridges are widely collected as well, often by the same organisations who collect the cartridges.
