    Toner Recycling

    Who do you guys use for toner recycling? None of the three recycling companies we have used in the past (Recycool, MoneyToSchools and EachOneCounts) take the toners from our new printers.

    Thanks. They don't take them, either!

    I wonder if I am struggling because the manufacturer offers a recycling scheme. At least that means they're not going into landfill, but I'd rather get some money for the school or a charity as well.

    Same story with them!

    We're having real difficulties finding anyone to take Konica, Kyocera or Samsung toners.

    Same here - anything and everything goes in our box. We possibly don't get paid for them, but they get taken off my hands - what they choose to do with them once they get them, thats up to them )

    On a related topic, do you encourage staff and pupils to bring cartridges in from home to a) recycle them and b) raise a bit of extra cash?

    Looks like that's what I'll have to do. Would have been nice to get a few pennies for charity though.

    Tesco take certain ink cartidges, mainly HP ones. For each one you can get 100 clubcard points = £1 worth of vouchers. In effect 4 carts would = one cinema voucher.

    You can recycle all your toner cartridges for free here and all money raised goes to Bullying UK. You'll also get the paper work you'll need for any environmental audits you might have
