You may be excited about upgrading an outdated printer, but what do you do when it comes to proper disposal of the old printer? The options are seemingly limited. It turns out, however, that there are a few ways to give your old printer a second life.
Donate it – if it is still working, just not giving you the desired results or is simply not efficient anymore, reach out to some local schools, colleges or other organizations to see if they would be able to use your printer for educational purposes.
Recycle it – While OEM recycling programs differ by printer, company and state, it’s best to reach out to the manufacturer directly to see what recycling options are available based on your location and printer model. Here are some links to help you get started:
Other companies do recycling, as well. You can check with your local waste management company for information on e-waste, while smaller printers may be accepted at stores like Office Max/Office Depot.
Replacing your printer can often seem daunting, but remember, with new or improved technology, the speed and efficiency – and sustainability – of the printer will increase. If you would like more information on current printer technologies, call your LexJet printer specialist at 800-453-9538.
