    Re: Recycling laser toner cartridges.

    Refilling is cheap and dirty work. We use U Refill www.refilltoner.com
    Some carts need a chip which they supply. Thats when it starts to feel like hard work. Work brill with OKI 7300 tho as drums are separate items to toner and no waste toner collection issue.

    Re: Recycling laser toner cartridges.

    We use a local guy for all our toners. Not the cheapest but he delivers personally and collects all old ones for recycling free of charge. We just have a box that when it gets full he comes and collects.

    This isnt much help unless you are in West Berkshire but there must be similar small companies doing it around the country

    All our Toners are OKI, but I can't find anyone who will accept them - recycool don't have them on their list

    I take them to Help the Aged who seem happy to have them

    I use Action Aid Recycling then also sold off my empty genuines to a firm on the internet, got a cheque for £200 the other day, so not bad at all

    Action Aid Recycling here too - free collection - supply boxes and bags

    Don't supply the hammer to belt the teacher over the head for stuffing paper in the toner cartridge recycling bin instead of the waste paper recycling bin though....it might put you off using them!!

    Re: Recycling laser toner cartridges.

    Note I am not Action Aid, just it ties in well here, and I use them and they are what I want from a company, don't call me often, no daily emails or anything, so I do like recomending them.
    Anyway Action Aid also do sell Cartridges -Compat and Genuine Inks (the comps I get are JetTech ones from them which seem very good in my use of them over the last 3 years) and they do genuine and compat toners, with money from the compat goods bought going to the Action Aid charity as well, so by buying from them and recylcing with them you are giving a charity a double helping of donations which I think is great.
    Jan is my account manager there and she is wonderful, very nice, quick to responde and very helpful.

    Re: Recycling laser toner cartridges.

    95% of our Toner Cartridges are remanufactured (compatibles) "Xinia", so I have contacted some companies/charities and they will not take this cartridges, only originals, does any of You use remanufactured toner cartridges and if so, which company/charity does acept them and collect?, I am building up a big mountain ...
