Turn used ink cartridges into money

Did you know that Americans use hundreds of millions of ink and toner cartridges for printers every year? And, estimates are that 70 percent of those are being sent straight to our landfills. This is enormously wasteful and unnecessary. These predominately plastic containers filled with ink are easily refilled or recycled. In fact, there are now a number of places that will actually pay you to recycle your used ink and toner cartridges. Most cartridges are made of plastic, a by-product of oil, but recycling them often involves little more than taking them apart, replacing any damaged parts, refilling and testing them. It’s clear that it is cheaper for manufacturers to refurbish these parts rather than pay for a new one. This creates savings for them that are passed on to you and me, the consumers.
