Do you ever wonder what to do with old printer cartridges? The chemicals and compounds inside them can pollute the soil and water, yet about 11 cartridges per second are thrown in the trash. A lot of ink and toner manufacturers have created programs that help people turn in their used cartridges to get recycled instead of getting thrown away. HP, for example, has a whole program dedicated to helping its customers recycle their cartridges.
