How to Recycle Laser Cartridges for Money
Get cash for old laser toner. (Cash image by Greg Carpenter from

Ink Guides estimates that one toner cartridge gets thrown away every 11 seconds by someone who doesn't care about the environmental impact or the cash incentive to recycle. You can take that old laser toner down to an office supply store and receive £1.30 to £1.90 in store credit for recycling the toner cartridge, but you get more money in cash for many types of toner cartridges. Recycled laser cartridges get checked for damage, filled with fresh ink and sold at a discount as remanufactured cartridges.
