Recycling Toner or Inkjet Cartridges

Empty toner cartridges are not recyclable in your blue bin or at any town drop-off, and should be returned to a vendor program (see below) or discarded as trash — regardless of any recycling symbols on the cartridge.

Some printer and toner cartridges can be refilled. To learn more about this option, contact:

Ribbon Recyclers:  185 Commerce St., Williston; (802) 660-8960

Vermont Toner Recharge:   400 Ave. D, Suite 30, Williston; (802) 864-7637

Always check to see if the new printer cartridge you purchase comes with an envelope to return the old one. A number of companies are providing this option.
