    www.lasertech.co.uk are the company we use, have made over £300 pound in credit for them recycling our toners. Also a donation is giving to your chosen charity. Also if you decide to use their refilled toners they guarantee your printer if there toner damages it i.e. they will fund an identical printer. Not had any fail on me yet though.

    With thin clients a powerfull server is required that does eat electricity, however this can service 20-30 thin clients.
    The eco benefits of thin clients is that old hardware can be re-used (generally lower power consumption) and new thin clients have very low power consumption (ours are 18W but I understand Sun thinclients are as low as 4W).
    tft screens also help
    You failed to mention that you can do away with air con in rooms that contain thin clients. I have a room of 30 HP thin clients and Neovo TFTs and it regularly gets cold in there without air con!

    The increased lifetime of a thin client device is also very eco-friendly since it means energy need not be expended to make new computers and there is less being chucked out.
