No More Ink Cartridges, PleaseThe library regrets we are unable to continue accepting ink and toner cartridges for recycling. The Solid Waste Agency of Lake County has these recycling recommendations: Staples, OfficeMax, Office Depot, Best Buy, and other retailers offer cartridge recycling, sometimes with reward credits. Some churches in Lake County collect cartridges for fundraising purposes. Ask your local congregation if they collect them. Funding Factory provides educational and non-profit groups fundraising opportunities by collecting cartridges. Green Disc recycles printer cartridges for a fee.
