Any owner of a laser-jet printer with empty ink cartridges cluttering their desk or home will surely benefit from a professional cartridge recycling program. These companies purchase old cartridges, refill them with ink and resell them to consumers for lower prices. Meanwhile, those that provide these services with empty cartridges can earn a few dollars or store credit for their used laser-jet toner.

An Internet-based company that specialises in purchasing used ink cartridges from consumers is eCycle. The company provides a packaging kit with instructions and free shipping labels so you can ship your toner to them at no cost. If your recycled cartridges meet their standards, eCycle will pay you by check or PayPal. eCycle provides a convenient price list for different laser-jet cartridges on their website, as well as an FAQ section that addresses any questions a recycler might have. eCycle also offers the ability to donate your proceeds to charity, and they specialise in fund-raising for schools and churches.


Designed to provide a streamlined cartridge reselling service to busy individuals or businesses, Empties4Cash purchases and properly recycles empty laser-jet ink cartridges.

You can directly donate any proceeds from ink sales to the charity of your choice, including local chapters of the Alzheimer's Association and Habitat for Humanity, or Empties4Cash can send you a check for the value of your cartridges within five business days of receipt of your package. On their website, Empties4Cash also provides helpful tips to maximise revenues from your recycling efforts.
