How can I reuse or recycle old printers?
We’ve covered the toner/ink cartridges in the past but have now had an email from Wendy Johnson Houghton about the machines themselves:
I have recently purchased a new printer for my personal use.
Sadly, it was cheaper to buy a new printer than to purchase toner cartridges for the old one.
I now have a printer which sort of works, but not brilliant – and I want to know whether it is recyclable?
If it’s still working – as you say it is, someone else might prefer to take a chance on refilling the existing cartridges or replacing them with cheaper ones – so it might be worth offering it on your local Freecycle group.
Any other suggestions?
