Atlanta Ink Cartridge and Laser Toner Recycling

by

Do you wonder what to do with that empty cartridge when your printer or copier has used all of it’s ink or toner up and it is time to replace it? Do you know the impact that tossing that laser toner or ink cartridge into the trash has on your environment?

This year, over 700 million ink and toner cartridges will be consumed in the United States. A small fraction of empty cartridges will be recycled, but many more end up in landfills. Hazardous chemicals from the cartridges can pollute the environment, while the plastic they’re made of will take centuries to decompose. -Wastewise

One local option is a company based in Gwinnett County. Print Green USA offers recycling services for your spent and/or surplus imaging supplies (laser toners, ink cartridges, drums, etc). Print Green USA, Inc not only sells laser toners, printer drums and ink cartridges, but they will recover their clients empties for recycling.  They also will recycle empty laser toners and ink cartridges that were not purchased there.

For More Information, Please Contact Print Green USA via Their Website: Toner Recycling

Remember To Think Green In Gwinnett!!!

-If you have information on other local toner cartridge recycling options, please email: giga@greeningwinnett.org and we will review for posting consideration.

    That’s great that you offer to recycle the ink cartridges and not require that they be purchased there.
