How does remanufacturing cartridges help the environment?
Remanufacturing both laser and ink jet cartridges reduces the amount of non-biodegradable plastic in landfills. Additionally, the manufacturing process used to create new cartridges depends heavily on fossil fuels, usually imported fossil fuels. That's why the EPA has mandated the use of remanufactured cartridges for all federal agencies. Each discarded empty laser printer cartridge adds approximately three pounds of unnecessary waste to our landfills. Waste that will take as long as 10 centuries to decompose. It is estimated that 100 million laser printer cartridges and 400 million ink jet printer cartridges are produced each year. Remanufacturing these 500 million cartridges will save an estimated 4 million cubic feet of landfill space. The office products remanufacturing industry has made, and will continue to contribute, a substantial positive impact upon the environment and the economy wherever it exists.

Why should I buy a remanufactured cartridge instead of a new?
You can save 40-60% off the cost of brand names and you are protecting the environment by keeping unwanted plastic and waste out of our landfills. Also, cartridges sold to you as new by some manufacturers are actually remanufactured as well. Look at the bottom or side of your box. Some say "Made in Japan from the highest quality new and recycled materials" while others state "this newly manufactured product may contain parts and materials recovered from the HP Planet Partners Recycling Program" or Canon's "This cartridge may contain reconditioned parts". You're probably paying too much for what is actually a "recycled" cartridge that has been put back into fancy packaging.

How can I get dried ink out of my print head so I can print again?
Place the clogged cartridge in about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of warm water for a few minutes. When ink starts to slowly leak out, take the cartridge out of the water and dry it using a lint free soft cloth to "Q-tip." Then place it back in your printer and run the print head cleaning utility that comes with your printer software. You may have to run this 2-4 times before printing quality is re-established.
