Printer and Toner Cartridge Recycling Made Easy

Printer disposal carries the same risk as other electronics do. Ink cartridges contain substances that can possibly seep into groundwater and soil. Recycling printers through certified programs is an easy and hassle-free way of getting rid of old equipment.

Items We Accept

We understand you may generate a lot of used office equipment over time. That’s why we accept a wide range of items, including:

  • Scanners
  • Copiers
  • Laser Printers
  • Ink Jet Printers
  • 3D Printers

Please note, there is a nominal fee for dropping off these items. For smaller printers, there is a $2.00 charge per item. Larger business models, due to their size and the complexity involved in their disposal, incur a $5.00 charge per item. This fee helps us maintain our commitment to sustainable recycling practices.

Why do I Need to Recycle My old Printer?

Unlike other types of waste generated by your business, old and outdated printers must be discarded carefully. Because of their electronic components, they can’t simply be thrown out and taken to a local landfill. Many electronics devices have components that are made from things like lead and cadmium. Should these materials make their way into groundwater and have a devastating impact on the environment. Also, if you choose to improperly dispose of your e-waste your business could face a hefty fine.

Our Printer Recycling Process

Our recycling process is designed to ensure maximum material recovery and proper waste disposal:

  1. Collection: Printers are either dropped off at our recycling center or collected or through our pickup service.
  2. Dismantling: We carefully dismantle the printers and separate recyclable materials.
  3. Recycling & Disposal: We send materials to specialized recycling facilities and responsibly dispose of non-recyclable parts.

Can I Throw Away old Ink and Toner Cartridges?

Yes. When it comes to printers, old ink and toner cartridges are also recyclable, which means they must also be kept out of landfills. Additionally, the plastic components used to make cartridges are not biodegradable. As a result, they will languish in landfills for years without breaking down.

How Do I Recycle My old Printer, Copier, or Scanner?

Printers, Copiers, and Scanners can be difficult to remove from your home or business and costly to transport.
