Why Should you Avoid Throwing Away Your Unused Toner?

Whether you’ve just purchased a new printer or you’ve ended up over-ordering, you’ve found yourself with too much toner. Having unused toner can be a waste of storage space and the last thing that you want is to end up with your toner drying up in the cupboard. But what can you do with all your unused toner? Well, perhaps we can help. Here at Trade Your Toner, we’re committed to purchasing all things printer including all of your unused toner cartridges. 

Working with us couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is get a quote, send us your toners through the post and we’ll deposit the money into your account the same day. It is also far better for you and the environment to work with us rather than throwing your toners away, even though it might seem like unnecessary extra steps. Below are some examples of why you should avoid throwing away your unused toner. 

Reasons to Avoid Discarding your Unused Toner

  • Contain Harmful Chemicals

  • It’s important to remember that the issues with throwing away toner go far beyond the fact that they’re made out of plastic. While plastic does take thousands of years to break down, you also have to consider the impact of the ink inside the toner. The compounds used in toner cartridges can seriously damage the environment, even though they’re not toxic to humans. When you send your cartridges to the landfill, you’re allowing these toxins to permeate through and contaminate the surrounding environment. The damage could be catastrophic and it’s easy to avoid this with the help of service from Trade Your Toner.

  • Cartridges don’t Degrade

  • Plastic is a big issue for the environment and even though great strides are being taken towards creating biodegradable plastic, toner cartridges currently are not biodegradable in any way. There are a number of reasons for this, one of which is that toner manufacturers want to make sure that their toners won’t break down while in storage. 

    So not only will the toner take a long time to break down, but the chemicals from the plastics will also be released into the soil alongside the toxic toner ink. Even if you’ve used your toner cartridges, there are loads of options for recycling and whether you’re a business owner or a private individual. 

  • You Can Earn Some Cash from your Cartridges

  • Your unused toner cartridges don’t need to be a waste of money, in fact, you can make some of it back. Instead of discarding your unused toner cartridges, you can sell them to us, avoiding any damage to the environment and making a little bit of extra cash. We’ve been working in the industry for many years, which is why we know that we’re going to offer you the best possible price for all of your toners. 

    Whether you’ve got one toner cartridge to sell or hundreds, we will buy them from you so you don’t need to just discard them. This money can be put towards new toner cartridges for your new printer, which is a far better use of your resources. As a result, recycling your unused toner cartridges with our team at Trade Your Toner is the ideal solution for both you and the environment.
