If you have printer or toner cartridges that you need to dispose of, you probably would like to ensure that they are handled in a an environmentally friendly way.

Inkjet printer cartridges can be quite easily recycled - many areas have local businesses that will refill cartridges for you, so you can take them along to be refilled yourself. You can even buy ink and refill them yourself.

If you don't want to do that, there are also many charities and organisations that collect used cartridges to help them raise funds. Perhaps your local school collects them to raise extra funds.  Many charities collect them too, and these can often easily be donated to one of their shops.

If all else fails, you should be able to take them to your local recycling centre, as most will accept them nowadays.
