Cash for Toner: Sell your school's unused toners

Written by: Cash for Toner | Published:

Schools can sell their unused toners for a good price while also ensuring they can find their way to someone who can make full use of them...

One of the toughest aspects of modern life is that we always seem to be running to keep up with the latest technological advances. New devices spring up at us constantly, and even the old familiar ones are regularly being superseded by improved versions – faster, better, shinier. As technology moves on, some of the peripheral elements can easily get left behind.

Toner cartridges are a prime example. When was the last time you bought a brand new printer that used the same consumables as the old one? There are literally tens of thousands of unused toners sitting in stationery cupboards across the land, unloved and unwanted purely because they won’t fit into the new office printer or copier.

So, what do you do with them? Simply throwing them away is a terrible idea for both environmental and economic reasons, while recycling perfectly usable (and significantly valuable) toners is a waste of energy, resources and potential income.

The best idea is to sell your unused toners to someone who will not only pay you a good price, but will ensure they are put back into the distribution channel where they can quickly find their way to someone who can make full use of them.

Cash for Toner is a UK organisation that has been purchasing unused surplus printer toners and ink cartridges for more than 10 years. They buy any OEM-branded toner cartridges. It doesn’t matter if the original packaging is damaged or missing, they can still buy them and help them find a new home. So have a root through your stationery cupboards for those dusty old printer consumables and drop Cash for Toner a line. The money you make might just help to offset part of your next tech upgrade.
