    Toner Recycling scheme - Who does yours?

    Hi guys

    I am looking at starting a toner/ink recycling scheme at my school. I have had a look on these threads but they all seem to be a couple of years old so was wondering who you use?

    Does anyone take away and recycle compatible toners and epson ink cartridges?
    Who do you use to recycle genuine toners?
    Do you involved kids bringing in used inks from home?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have looked at Recycling for Schools | Recycling for Schools in association with The recycling factory who look good for the £1 per toner or ink but their list of accepted ones doesn't seem that big.

    I think we may have to register with a couple of companies one for the genuine toners and one for compatibles.

    Thanks

    As above.

    We ask our staff to repackage the used laser toners [HP] into the boxes we give them that come with the new toners.

    The inkjet cartridges go to a member of staff who collects them for Guide Dogs For The Blind.
