Community Waste Prevention Fact Sheet - Toner Cartridges
Each year, millions of empty toner and inkjet cartridges used in laser printers, fax machines and copiers are thrown in the trash, destined for landfills and incinerators. Buying locally remanufactured toner and inkjet cartridges — and recycling empty cartridges — is an easy way for government agencies and public institutions to reduce the environmental impact of these discarded products, while also saving substantial tax dollars and bolstering the local economy.
Any office equipment that uses a toner cartridge, as opposed to requiring toner to be added to the machine, should be able to use remanufactured cartridges.
This fact sheet, uploaded by INFORM, provides guidance on buying remanufactured toner cartridges, as well as some related strategies for minimizing waste and pollution from these and other printing supplies.
