Reduce Your Environmental Impact and Recycle Your Old Ink Cartridges

Reduce Your Environmental Impact and Recycle Your Old Ink Cartridges

More than 350 million ink and toner cartridges are thrown away every year instead of being recycled, contributing to over 254 million tons of trash produced by Americans each year according to the EPA. Printer cartridges are also a significant investment in resources, from various plastics and metals to inks and toners. These resources are wasted when the cartridges are discarded into landfills.

Why add one more cartridge to the landfill? Many manufacturers have their own ink recycling programs that eventually lead to our products on TomatoInk.com.

Read the side of your product's box to find out about disposal best practices or keep reading to check out ways to recycle your old toner and ink cartridges.

HP offers two convenient ways to recycle your original HP ink or LaserJet cartridges. Drop off at an HP Authorized Retail Collection Location or print/order postage-paid shipping materials on the HP website.

For your used Epson branded inkjet cartridges, ink packs, bags, and bottles, you can package the old cartridges and send to Epson America, Inc.'s Recycling Center. For your AcuLaser CX11N Series cartridges, you can ship using a pre-paid label available on the Epson website.

The Canon cartridge recycling program enables you to send back your all-in-one cartridge via a UPS label on the Canon website. For Canon's plastic toner containers, you can take advantage of your local government recycling program, return your used cartridge directly to Canon, or contact your local Authorized Canon Dealer for other recycling options.

Brother and Samsung both use a mail-in recycling program. Reuse the shipping box from your toner and ink cartridges to return your used cartridges, print a free USPS SmartLabel® shipping label, and drop off the return to anywhere in the U.S. Postal Service mail system.

Lexmark also provides a similar mail-in recycling option: reuse your box, print a shipping label from the website, and ship via the designated carrier.

For your old Dell ink and toner cartridges, package the item, print a prepaid waybill from the Dell recycling web page, and schedule a FedEx pickup or drop off your package at a FedEx location.
