Going green is hardly a new idea, but the truth is that companies of all shapes and sizes are constantly reinventing it. There are all kinds of new, efficient ways to go green that don’t waste time or money and, in fact, make things easier for you. Recycling toner cartridges is a great example–and here’s everything you need to know to get started!


When you think about going green in your workplace, you probably think about choosing more efficient office equipment, upgrading multifunction devices to save energy, or cutting down on unnecessary printing jobs. In truth, every attempt to go green is a good attempt–but some options are “savvier” than others and require a lot less work to make a much bigger impact. Take, for example, your toner cartridges. Chances are, they pile up pretty quickly in your office–and unfortunately, every cartridge you throw away will take 1,000 years to decompose, spilling hazardous chemicals into the environment the whole time.

The good news is that it’s easy to start recycling toner cartridges. Here are a few tips to help get you started!

  • Try recycling locally.

Most cities have a local recycling facility that will help you get rid of all kinds of materials. Make sure any recycling facility you choose is willing to accept toner cartridges, though!

  • Team up and do double the good.

By partnering with a charity in your community, you can double your positive impact on the world. Just donate your used toner cartridges to the charity–they can recycle them and get money for doing so. It’s a win-win for you and your charity of choice (and Mother Nature, too).

  • Boost your reputation.

Remember, at the end of the day, customers love working with businesses that are actively minimizing their environmental footprint and finding new ways to go green while offering great service.
