Ink For Printer - How To Discard Both Used & Unused Ink Cartridges Without Throwing Them In The Trash

How quickly do you go through ink for printer? How many printers are in your home or business? What do you do with printer cartridges you are done with - used or unused?

We have one printer in our home and I take the empty cartridges to Staples to redeem them for rewards, but this recently crossed my mind when a client had a large surplus of ink and toner after getting rid of an old printer. In this instance buying in bulk turned out to be a waste of money and she didn't live near any office supply stores, so I did some research.

Ink for printer - how to discard used and unused printer ink.

Here's how to discard BOTH used and unused printer ink WITHOUT throwing printer ink cartridges (and money) into the garbage. The below options are better for the environment, better for your wallet and serve the greater good.
