Tip Tuesday - Recycling Used Printer & Toner Cartridges


Staples has come up with a great recycling program for old printer and toner cartridges called the Ink Drop Program. Here's how it works:

When your ink cartridge runs out, drop a new one in your printer and mail us the empty one using a prepaid InkDrop envelope or mailing label. We'll get it and send you a replacement before you run out. We'll even recycle your old ones.

The service is free, even the shipping.

The only purchase you make is your cartridges. Once you're signed up and place a cartridge order we'll send your welcome kit with everything you need to get started.


Try it out and see how you like it. I think the best part is you always have an extra cartridge on hand so you're never caught without one.

Hi Wendy,

I don't know if Staple's program is the same everywhere bu here in Montreal Canada, the cartridges taht are sent back are not recycled. This means that a good part of the ressources used to make them in the first place is lost.
