QUALITY LASER RECHARGING
Every time you discard a laser cartridge, it adds additional waste to our already overburdened landfills. Each laser cartridge takes about 1000 years to biodegrade! Please help us in this way to preserve our environment by recycling your old toner cartridges. For more information, see "Ink Refilling and the Environment."
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INK AND TONER?
Toner is a very fine synthetic powder that is inside all laser cartridges. It is the equivalent of ink inside inkjet cartridges. When a thick layer of toner is placed on a sheet of paper and heated, it fuses with the paper to form an image. Most laser cartridge models contain from 150 to about 600 grams of toner. The more toner in the cartridge, the more pages can be printed. A typical cartridge can print about 3,000 black and white pages, and high volume cartridges can print 20,000 pages and more.
Color laser printers contain four cartridges, each with a different color of toner. The four typical color cartridges are black, yellow, magenta and cyan. It is the mixing of these four toners that produces the various desired colors you see on a printed page.
