Should You Choose a Refillable or Recycled Toner Cartridge?

toner-581905_640Refillable toner cartridges can be refilled or remanufactured. What you choose should be based on what works for your circumstances. If you plan to print pages for personal reading or forms that need less quality, then a refillable cartridge will work even if it is less desirable. Refillable toner cartridges can save you more than 90 percent on the price of a new cartridge, but there will be a serious sacrifice to quality. Recycled toner can save on your overhead costs, and the monetary savings is not the only advantage that you have to look at. For example, refillable toner cartridges are more biodegradable, and they lead to less paper waste.

A toner refill costs little compared to a new cartridge, but the size and method of the refill could vary based on the cartridge model. Newer cartridges have the advantage of being calibrated to prevent clogging your nozzles, and they have been tested to guarantee clear and sharp imaging. In the long run, it will be healthier for your copier to purchase refillable toner cartridges. We do not recommend recycled toner unless you are strapped for cash and quality does not matter as much.
