Here are some frequently asked questions:

1.  How do we recycle toner cartridges on campus?

Canon toner cartridgesToner cartridges







Answer:  As seen and indicated on the Guidelines page, large printer and or copier toner can be recycled by returning them to our current office supply vendor.  It is suggested to use the box from the new cartridge and mark it for Recycling.  Place this in an area where the vendor can collect it when they are already in your office dropping off new products.

2.  Is it true that pizza boxes are trash?
