Spent Toner and Ink Cartridge Recycling

Most used printer, toner, and inkjet cartridges are not regulated as hazardous waste but may consist of plastic particles, carbon black, fumed silica, dyes, and charge control agents, possibly rendering them flammable or explosive. A large majority of these items can also be recycled. TMCC makes every attempt to recycle materials that can be reasonably and legitimately recycled.
