Toner/Ink Cartridge Recycling

Printing ink and toner cartridges contain chemicals that are harmful for the environment and health. Many ink manufacturers provide free mailing labels to return used products for recycle and reuse at no cost. Please check the product's website if no such label is provided.

Local stores such as Target also offer ink cartridge recycling drop-off.

On the NIU campus, you can recycle your ink cartridges through our interoffice mail by placing used cartridges in an envelope addressed to "Campus Mail/Recycle."
