Procurement Services maintains relationships with vendors who pay for used printer toner cartridges. As a result, DePaul University is eligible to receive funds for the toner we recycle.

To participate in this program, simply follow these steps:

  1. Place your used cartridge in the container that your new cartridge arrived in.
  2. Interoffice it to: "Procurement Services - Toner Recycling."

Procurement Services receives a check for all returned cartridges quarterly, which adds up to several thousand dollars per year. These funds are then put into the general scholarship fund with students reaping 100% of the benefits.

If you are mailing NEW ink or toner between departments / campuses, via inter-office mail, it must be placed into another box prior to mailing or it will be considered “for recycle.” By shipping it in a separate box, the mail sorters will be able to differentiate between reallocated toner and used cartridges for recycling.

If you have any questions regarding inter-office mailing, please contact Distribution Services at x2-8367 or distributionservices@depaul.edu.
