Troop 279 has set up a fund-raiser with Tech Valley Recycling in Clifton Park. The troop will get paid for sending in used cartridges for printer ink and toner.
Any type of cartridge is acceptable except
No copier toner (usually in bottle-shaped containers)
We only get paid for certain kinds of cartridges.
The current list is here (http://techvalleyrecycling.clientrecycling.com/) but changes with market conditions so we will send in whatever we can collect.
Here is how it works:
Give your used printer ink/toner cartridges to Derek Symula.
You can bring them to a troop meeting or make arrangements to drop them off at my house.
Once I have at least 20 items or 20 lb of items, I'll package them up and send them to the recycling center.
The troop gets mailed a check.
Alternatively, if you go through a lot of ink at home or work, you can elect to send them in for recycling yourself. I will provide you with the pre-paid shipping labels and, if necessary, boxes. Just remember that you need a minimum of 20 items or 20 lb per box.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions:
