In the Golden State of California, an outcry for GREEN has arisen. Recycling printer cartridges and ink is an excellent way to turn gold into green. Not only do you help protect the environment from overflowing landfills and leaking toner ink, you save money.
According to WasteWise, remanufactured (recycled / compatible) toner cartridges generally cost “20 to 50 percent less than new ones.”  Many major manufacturers, including Hewlett Packard (HP), Brother, Canon, Lexmark, and Panasonic, produce laser printer toner cartridges that can be refurbished or recycled. Just think: many laser printer toner cartridges easily cost $100 or more. With one simple phone call to Laser Printer Resource, you could cut that bill in half!
Not only is using recycled toner is easy and affordable, it’s environmentally friendly. The Environmental Protection Agency estimated that over 250 million cartridges were dumped into North American landfills in 2001 and that 400 million will be dumped in 2003. In 2001, only about 10% of these cartridges were recycled. Given that the average ink jet toner cartridge weighs around 1.6 ounces and the average laser printer cartridge weighs around 2 pounds, it’s easy to see that a lot of unnecessary garbage is being produced. Most ink and toner cartridges can and should be recycled! 
Even the California state government has taken action on this simple and yet valuable way to reduce waste. The Department of General Services notes that buying remanufactured toner cartridges is one of the industry’s “best practices” and encourages, and sometimes even mandates, the use of compatible toner in its own offices. Recycling toner is an excellent way to “Go Green!”
