Printer cartridge recycling is provided at the university either by Van Ausdall & Farrar or by Facilities Services, depending upon the type and source of the cartridge.
If the toner cartridges are supplied by Van Ausdell & Farrar for the network printers that they maintain, then they will collect the used cartridges and recycle as necessary. If the toner or inkjet cartridges were purchased via an office supply company, then Facilities Services will collect and recycle the cartridges. Additional information for each situation may be found below.
