Ink and toner cartridge usage
Consider purchasing recycled cartridges from a reputable vendor. Visit percent20Businesses/toner.htm for Procurement's list of small business toner and ink cartridge vendors. Set the printer preferences to the lightest setting appropriate for your print job.

Some recycling tips: do not throw ink and toner cartridges in the trash. It is bad for the environment, and they can be remanufactured for reuse. Please do not give or mail your ink and toner cartridges to outside sources. We recycle right here on campus. The University has a contractual agreement with a toner and ink cartridge recycler and receives a recycling stipend which helps fund the recycling program.

Departments can request a collection box (17” square x 2’ feet tall) from Kathleen Reynolds, integrated waste manager, at 278-5801.

Old cell phones can also be collected with the used ink and toner cartridges. Remember to remove the SIM card.
