Recycle Your Used Printer Cartridges
Did you know that more than 350 million old ink and toner cartridges contribute to over 254 million tons of trash in the United States each year? Printer cartridges are also a significant investment in resources, from plastics and metals to inks and toners. These resources are wasted when the cartridges are discarded into landfills—that's why TomatoInk's remanufactured cartridges are such a great choice for your home or office.
Don't be a statistic! Start recycling your old cartridges today. See below for the most popular manufacturers' ink recycling programs. Or check out your original product's box to find out where to dispose of your cartridge.
