Printer Cartridges

Printer Cartridges!

Illegal in Garbage & Drains

We NO LONGER have a printer cartridge drop-off bin at the Town. Unfortunately, the company we sent them to cannot accept them anymore. Cartridges are very difficult to recycle, but some manufacturers have take back programs where you can mail in your used cartridges/toners. Staples, Best buy, Office Depot, and Office Max usually have buy-back programs as well. Visit this link for more detailed information about take back programs and other recycling options.

Otherwise, please take your cartridges to Eastern Regional Landfill to be properly disposed of.

Special Directions

Printer cartridges can be taken to Eastern Regional Landfill during normal business hours for a fee. From there, it will be sent to a recycling facility, disassembled, and recycled into new products.
