Recycling Your Printer Cartridges After the Holiday SeasonJanuary 4, 2011 No Comments
So the Holiday Season is over and you have printed every important picture that you want to keep. What do you do next with all those empty laser toner cartridges and ink cartridges? Do you just dump them in your trash bin or do you do something with these printer cartridges?
Well, if you really want to help out on the preservation of the environment, then you may want to consider recycling your laser toners or ink cartridges. After all the printing that you made last Christmas and New Year, there will be at least one or two empty cartridges in your printer that need to be disposed so an eco-friendly way to get rid of these is to go for a cartridge recycling program. There are printer supply stores that offer this service for free or even with an allotted payment for a specific kind of cartridge which is not bad at all, right?
If you haven’t known yet, an estimate of 400 million used toner and ink cartridges are being thrown away every year which can contribute greatly to the piles of junks in landfills.It would take thousands of years for the cartridge you throw away to dissolve into the earth, let alone the pollution it will create in the earth’s grounds.
So why not give those to a good recycling program which can provide you with extra cash and save Mother Nature? After all, with the expenses that you have made in the past Holiday Season, this will be a great opportunity for you to get some money back by recycling your used printer supplies.
