Brother’s Toner/Ink Cartridge Disposal Program

Ink and Toner cartridges are harmful to our environment. This is the reality that we consumers have to understand. We have become dependent on products that make our lives easier but at the cost of harming the environment. Every day, tons of non-biodegradable wastes pile up in landfills. Over time, the materials from which these products are made of produce dangerous gases that can harm our environment. That is why there are programs that educate and help us find ways on how we can recycle products. Some programs teach us where to properly dispose our waste.

Brother is an electronics company that manufactures printers, fax machines, and other office equipment. The company also manufactures their own ink and toner for their line of printing products. They are aware of the harmful effects of disposing ink and toner cartridges improperly, that is why they want to reach out to their consumers and help them dispose their brother printer cartridges properly.

Brother’s Toner and Ink Cartridge Disposal Program

Another environmental program that is implemented by Brother is the Toner/Ink Cartridge Disposal program. This program asks for consumers’ cooperation to dispose their printer cartridges properly. Once the consumer finishes his/her ink or toner cartridge, they can send the cartridge back to Brother for free. So instead of just throwing it in waste baskets and ending up in landfills, Brother lets you print out a free prepaid shipping label so you can send them your empty brother cartridges.

If you have empty Brother ink or toner cartridges, here is what you need to do in order to mail them back to them:

  • Go to their website and print the Free Prepaid Shipping Label.
  • Repack the empty cartridge and attach the shipping label.
  • Drop it in the mail.

That is all you have to do. Doing this is a win-win situation for our environment because cartridges will end up being reused or recycled by the company. It is your way of protecting our environment as well. Some of the cartridge components will be remanufactured, some will be reused, while unusable components are processed through Waste to Energy (WTE).

If you are using a Brother printer and you want to help the environment even in a small way, mail your empty cartridges back to the company and let them recycle it properly. All you have to do is go to Brother’s website and look for their Environmental Program page. This page is where you can get your free prepaid shipping label. If you do not have immediate access to a printer, Brother can send the label through mail.
