It’s time for you to get rid of your old Epson ink cartridges and purchase new ones. Your cartridge has been good to you, lasting for a lot longer than you thought it would, but now purples are printing out, looking much more like just a line of red and a line of blue than the colors you desired. This means that it’s time for you to invest in a new ink cartridge. But what do you do with your old one? Do you just throw it into the trash?
There are actually a number of different options that you can select from when you’re deciding what you want to do with your old cartridge. The first thing that you might want to think about is refilling it. There are some companies that specialize in quality re-manufactured cartridges by offering a recycling plan. You pay for a mailing box, then you can send your used cartridge in. They’ll repair it, refill it, and test it, then send it back to you. It’s a great way to save money and keep an old cartridge out the landfill too.
You can always refill your cartridges yourself, but this is not necessarily a good idea. While it is possible for you to purchase a refills kit that allows you to handle the procedure, it is a very messy business, and one that quite often winds up with ink on your clothes, on the floor, and all over your work surface.
You can also resell them. There are a few companies that purchase ink from individuals, as well as businesses, in order to refill them. While most people do not want to purchase a cartridge that is refilled and that has already been used, it is a good idea for you to make money off of your old toner by selling it!
In order to sell your cartridge, the first thing you have to do is to find out who is purchasing them. There are a few different quality companies online, and, quite often, simply typing “sell old printer cartridge” into a search engine will take you exactly where you want to go.
But how much can you really make? It depends on how high the demand is. If you have an older printer, you may be able to make up to $10 per cartridge simply because they’re not as available as they once were, and customers want to purchase these older models. The average, however, is generally under $3.50 per cartridge. While it won’t pay your car payment, it can add up fairly quickly. These companies then refill and resell them at a discount to their own customers.
If you do not want to refill yours, and you don’t have the time to resell it, recycling is the best idea. Speak with your local recycling center for the appropriate procedures. They will be able to tell you what you need to do in order to recycle the cartridge. Often you will need to do nothing more than to bring your cartridge to the correct place at the correct time.
Handling your old Epson ink cartridges and toner doesn’t have to be difficult no matter which Epson printer models you own. The key to a greener world, though, is to keep them out of the landfill.
