At UL Lafayette, we believe that it is important to reduce our overall waste stream, and one way to help us do that is by recycling those used ink and toner cartridges! Our office will pick up your old cartridges on campus, repack them, and send them off to Funding Factory where they will recycled and refurbished.
In addition to recycling ink and toner cartridges, this office partnered with sponsors CGI and Capital Area Corporate Recycling during one of the past Fête de la Terre to host an E-Waste Drop Off. This allowed the campus community to responsibly recycle old electronic items such as computers, laptops, gaming consoles, hard drives, etc. Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council provides refurbished computers and equipment to schools, Nonprofits, and low income families. The organization accomplishes this by electronic refurbishment and recycling, including collection, sorting, dismantling, refurbishing, data wiping, sales and donations.
Request Ink and Toner for your Office or Department
Do you need ink / toner for your office printer? You can now request ink from the Inventory of donated ink / toner by putting in a request in the Ink and Toner Request Form.
Unused ink / toner can be donated to the Office of Sustainability to redistribute. If you have ink / toner that is not compatable with your office printer please fill out the Ink and Toner Recycle Request Form and specify that you have "New" ink / toner to donate so that can be redistributed somewhere else on campus. This is a waste reduction strategy that keeps ink / toner out of the landfill and is economically beneficial to the University.
