How to Recycle Kyocera Mita Toner Cartridges
Recycling helps the environment. (recycling 3d image by Tomislav from

Kyocera toner cartridges are made primarily of plastic, with some small metal and other components. These extra parts mean that most recycling centres won't accept the cartridges directly. To solve this, Kyocera has created its own Toner Container Recycling (TCR) Program that accepts every Kyocera-manufactured cartridge. Kyocera is committed to reusing or recycling as much of the toner cartridge as possible.

  1. 1

    Find the original packaging that the Kyocera toner cartridge came in. Otherwise, use the box from the new replacement cartridge you've purchased. Seal the empty cartridge in the enclosed plastic bag.

  2. 2

    Wrap the cartridge in an additional plastic bag or a small amount of newspaper to cushion it. Pack it in the original or replacement box for shipping.

  3. 3

    Take the cartridge to your local post office to purchase postage and ship the package.
