  • What happens to Recycled Content:
    • At Penn State, General Stores is the main processing center for used toner cartridges
    • They will accept cartridges for recycling whether they were purchased through General Stores or from another source
    • In 2016, 10 tons of used toner cartridges were recycled at the University Park campus
    • Due to the material and energy savings in the recycling process, cost savings are passed along to the consumer
