These are just a few of the advantages of re-using and recycling your printer and toner cartridges:
- Re-using and recycling cartridges uses less energy and resources. It takes around 3 quarts of oil to make just one typical laser printer cartridge. This goes to show that every cartridge saved makes a big difference.
- Oil is a non-renewable material and re-using and recycling cartridges conserves oil.
- Printer cartridges also use aluminum and steel and these resources are also preserved when cartridges are re-used.
- Re-using and recycling cartridges keeps them out of landfills. Every year millions of tons of non-biodegradable printer and toner cartridges are dumped in landfills. These take up space in ever-shrinking landfill sites and can release toxins and gases into the air, soil and water. A cartridge can take decades to decompose in landfill.
When you do need to buy a new cartridge, the greenest choice is to buy remanufactured cartridges from CARRCO. These cartridges are less expensive than brand new ones and they come with a guarantee to work as well as new cartridges.
The most notable feature of MICR toner is that it’s magnetic. Printing with this magnetic toner enables your documents to be read or scanned by an array of different MICR devices; namely those located at your bank and local financial institutions. This reduces your risk of check fraud. If someone gets one of your preprinted checks, they can take it right to the bank and cash it. On the other hand, blank check stock makes check fraud more difficult. Using CARRCO MICR toner will help reduce your risk of being a victim of check fraud, which can cost you thousands of dollars.

Have you ever been printing and thought, “I just put this toner in, there is no way I am out of toner already. My toner says it prints 6 thousand pages?”
Every toner cartridge has a yield; this means this the amount of pages your toner will print up to. One of the important aspects to think of when choosing a printer or buying a replacement cartridge, is how much ink or toner that cartridge actually contains. Amount of ink or toner in cartridge is usually called cartridge yield or page yield.
When you turn to see what the yield of a cartridge is, you will see a number of pages the cartridge can print, right? Not exactly, printed pages differ from one another. One time you print a to-do list, next time it’s 10-page report.
For the purpose of cartridge yield measure, almost all printer manufacturers base their black ink/toner cartridge yields on 5% coverage. This means only 5% of the whole page is covered with ink or toner. 5% coverage implies basic type with no bold characters, no graphics and no pictures.
Now take the last two paragraphs above and place them on a Letter-sized sheet of paper. Congratulations! You have created a sample 5% coverage page.
