Printer Cartridge Recycling (Proposed)

Description

Printer cartridges come in many varieties, and so do the recycling options.  Because these items are considered consumable supplies, they don’t have the same stringent state regulations over disposal that equipment does.  The university has the right to dispose of waste stream items like this in the most economical and prudent manner.  There is not currently a university-wide recycling program for printer/toner cartridges, so departments are encouraged to identify the best option for their program.  Here are some possibilities:

  • return toner cartridges to the copier/printer toner supplier, if they will reuse them
  • send cartridges to ICC Business Products, Inc. in Indianapolis
  • bring ink-jet cartridges to Best Buy on North Prospect Avenue
