    Laser cartridge refill 1st Mar 18 at 9:38 AM
    Does anyone know if any company offers a Laser Cartridge refill service? I really don't want my cartridges to end up in landfill.

    It depends on your cartridge. If you look on Ebay with your cartridge number you will probably find lots of refills. They come in bottles and you need to drill a hole in the side of the cartridge and after refilling place the rubber/plastic bung supplied in the hole.

    Cartridgeworld will recycle your old toner cartridges. Also my local authority has a special bin for them in the household waste site.

    Some cartridges may not be totally empty, just have a chip in them to says that they are empty due to characters/ pages... some printing value.

    Some toner cartridges can be refilled with toner, and methods for the cartridge are often found on Youtube.


    You are lucky to get 4 refills from the drum in there as it perishes. Also due to wear may leak and start to streak, or blotch.
