Two Ways to Recycle Empty Printer Ink Cartridges

Two Easy Ways to Recycle Printer Ink Cartridges

I know most of you still use home printers, so listen up — recycling those empty printer cartridges has just gotten a whole lot easier thanks to HP and Walgreens! Last week I purchased a new HP cartridge and included in the box was a little envelope (postage paid) for me to mail away my old cartridge for recycling. And then after a quick trip to Walgreens, I noticed on my bag that Walgreens has a printer cartridge recycling program where you just take your empty cartridge to the photo counter for recycling — how great is that?! And if you have an old HP cartridge but didn't get an envelope with your new one, you can order one here.

Staples is also an authorized location for HP’s Planet Partners print cartridge collection and recycling program. Little known fact – HP has been recycling cartridges since 1991 and has collected more than 265 million cartridges since then. But, we couldn’t do it without customer participation – which jumped by 25 percent from 2007 to 2008. So, keep ‘em coming! - Thom Brown HP Ever wonder how print cartridges are recycled? Check out a recent tour of HP’s inkjet cartridge recycling facility, located in Nashville, TN. http://www.informationweek.com/blog/main/archives/2009/03/inside_hps_ink.html

My partner works at a printer cartridge refill company - those cartridges can be refilled up to 15 times, sometimes more depending on the cartridge. We save so much money now.

Lexmark has a program where you can order return envelopes and mail your cartridges back. Each one you mail back gives you credit towards a free cartridge.

Even better take them to Staples, and they will give you a $3 credit in Staples cash. (Whether you bought it there or not)
