    Just go through HP. They will send you boxes with prepaid shipping labels for all your ink waste.

    I just put them in the back room with the other containers of ink I've never figured out what to do with. The non-tree hugger inside me just says toss it in the dumpster w/ everything else.

    Many manufacturers package their ink cartridges with a returnable envelope - if you send them your used cartridge they will ensure that it is recycled.
    You can send it to one of these places!!!

    That would require progressive thinking on the part of North American companies. Your ink sources in Delhi seriously have cradle-to-grave solutions? Do they pay for shipping?

    We've always gone the kitty litter route.

    I'd hate to see the results of a Phase I Environmental report on bob's denim rich property. Maybe this explains how he's been able to breed cow horses?

    Watch it! We have ownership of the denim thing, and won't sit idly by while others stake claim to it.

    Won't even get into an argument over whether it's a big deal to dump the ink or not, but it will bite you in the *** at some point. Not saying the moon's going to fall on you, but the law might.

    its only hazardous waste if you simply toss the cartridges in the dumpster.
    dried ink is no more hazardous than scrap vinyl.

    I fill balloons with used ink each night and decorate other sign shop's walls with it.
    They never seem very pleased.

    :ROFLMAO:, that will make them happy, my printer said i ran out of ink i didnt it had a bunch left in the cartridge, so i instead bought another chip and used the rest , i could buy a roll of material with all the "empty " cartridges if i actually got use of all the ink in paid for
