Toner Cartridge Recycling


Thanks to Sharie Williams and the Finance Department for participating in the toner cartridge recycling program.

LIFE’s Toner Cartridge Recycling Program rewards departments that return used toner cartridges to the Office of Sustainability. Each month participating departments will be entered in a drawing to receive a “prize” for the office to share.

To date, more than 100 toner cartridges have been collected for recycling, eliminating waste from landfills and bringing us one step closer to reaching our sustainability goals.

A special thanks to the following departments for participating in the program

  • Basic Sciences
  • Center for Health & Optimum Performance (C-HOP)
  • Clinical Sciences
  • College of Chiropractic
  • Executive Office
  • Finance
  • Grounds
  • Human Resources
  • Library
  • Life Commons
  • Natural Sciences
  • Purchasing
  • Registrar
  • Sports Health Science
  • Student Accounts
  • Student Success Center

For those departments that have yet to participate, it’s not too late! Simply contact Shannan George, Sustainability Coordinator,; x4339 for pick-up when you change toner cartridges. Its that simple.



Some of the best advice I’ve ever received has come from a colleague, friend or family member. Today I would like to give you the opportunity to be the expert and to share your recycling experiences with the LIFE community. 

  • What do you recycle and why?
  • If you don’t recycle….what could change your mind?
  • Do you recycle at home? Take reusable bags to the grocery store?
  • How have you found ways to make recycling easier?

Comment on this post with your experiences for a chance to win a prize from the Office of Sustainability. The winner will be randomly chosen from comments submitted by 12 pm (EST) on March 4, 2011. (Note: Prize must be picked up in the Office of Sustainability).
