Find a local recycling center for printers
Our customers have asked, “Where can I find a place to recycle an old printer? There are likely multiple locations to recycle printers by state, just be sure to understand the universal waste and hazardous waste laws by location.
It's important to receive certificates of recycling and certificates of destruction so you know your information has been disposed of in an ethical and secure way. If you do not receive these certificates, it’s likely these items are not being disposed of properly and have a chance of being thrown into a landfill. Besides the negative impact to the environment, items not intended for landfills may be found by the DNR or other agencies in your state. Serial numbers on the items can be traced back to your organization and fines may be issued. Having proper certificates means your company will not be held liable in the event the recycling company didn’t adhere to the law – but they will.
