Frequently Asked Questions

It’s better to segregate toners from dry mixed recycling waste. Toner and ink cartridges can be reused and recycled into the same streams present in DMR, however the residual ink and whether or not the cartridge is damaged complicate the process and make recycling and reusing them more difficult.

With a specialised toner recycling service, the cartridges are cleaned out if they are undamaged and then simply reused, however if there is any damage then they need to be broken apart and then broken down into reusable materials. If they were thrown in a regular recycling bin, none of the toner cartridges could be salvaged for reuse.

Yes, your toner cartridge box can be collected with the rest of your waste collections. Bywaters offer bespoke services that are tailored to meet your needs. We can organise a collection in line with your other waste collections.

Bywaters offers reporting services that enable us and our clients to keep track of what waste is being produced where, as well as how much is being produced of what waste stream. Using this we are able to provide tailored collection services, meaning it would not be a one-size-fits-all rate at which toners are collected.
