Ink Cartridges

Ink cartridges are usually accepted back at a retail store (e.g. Staples). Often you will receive a discount on your next ink cartridge purchase or credit in the form of an in-store rebate. There are also various programs where you can send your cartridge off in the mail to a charitable organization. You may also call us at 812-663-0960 because we are sometimes able to accept these at our office. Please call before stopping in to drop these off.


This is a hazardous material and must be brought to one of our Tox-a-Way days throughout the year. Please call or visit our website for Tox-a-Way event dates.
