Solutions for Your Used Toner Instead of Throwing it Away

When deciding what to do with your used toner cartridges, you’d probably be surprised by the number of options that are available to you. Of course, throwing them away isn’t the ideal option as that can cause damage to the environment and to the health of those living near landfill sites. Recycling is a far better option, but there are so many different ways that you can recycle your toner cartridges, which can feel overwhelming. 

Our team at Trade Your Toner wants it to be as easy as possible for you to dispose of your toner cartridges. The last thing that we want is for it just to be easier to send the cartridges to the landfill. So here are four things that you can do with your used toner cartridges instead of throwing them away.

  • Refill and Use Again

  • One of the best ways to avoid throwing your toner cartridges is to simply reuse them. Your ink cartridges tend to be something you use once, but there are a number of ways to keep using them. Once you’ve used the ink cartridges, you can replace the ink and use the cartridges again. Not only is this better for the environment, but it’s also significantly cheaper for you because you’re not purchasing new cartridges as well. There are two many ways that you can have them refilled; you can either take them to a specialist or buy the kit and refill them yourself. 

  • Donate them to a Charity

  • If you’re really thinking about how you can take care of your community at the same time as looking after the environment. Donating your cartridges is the ideal way for you to do this. There are a number of charities who will take empty ink cartridges off your hands to sell and raise money for their charity, or refill to provide themselves with more affordable ink. This is a really easy way for you to support local charities, even if you can’t donate funds or time. One thing to note is that you should always check with the charity before sending your cartridges to them. You don’t want to end up overwhelming them with unwanted cartridges.

  • Recycle at a Local Centre

  • Dropping them off at your local recycling centre is the common choice and you can know that they will be put to good use. Most local tips will have an ink cartridge recycling point to make it really easy for you to get rid of your cartridges.

  • Sell them with Trade your Toner
