Ink and Toner cartridges, when empty, are sent for re-manufacturing. The cartridges are disassembled and inspected. Worn components are replaced, and the cartridges are reassembled, filled, and inspected just as they were when first manufactured.

Printer cartridge recycling saves the re-manufacturer money because only the components subject to wear and tear get replaced with new parts; the main body of the cartridge can be reused multiple times.

Cartridges are accepted at Puhi Metals only if they are in the printer when dropped off for recycling.
