    No idea.
    I used to take mine to Cartridge World and get a replacement refilled one.
    But there were too many problems
    So now I just buy new ones from Brother (PB Tech) and throw them away in the landfill
    We have plenty of room here in NZ.

    Somethings are worth reclying some are not.
    It must cost heaps to clean and re-manufacture things and with all the transport and sorting its really a joke.
    That is why our councils sent their stuff to asia where they just burned it outside.
    So what colour is your Adkaf?

    I used to use Cartridge World as well, but like you it eventually became too hard.

    Brother have a good scheme going, you call them and they send you out for free ways to recycle their products. https://www.brother.co.nz/recycling

    Cant say for other manufactures, but have a look on the web site of the manufacture see what they offer.

    These days its in their interest to do something.

    I did that before posting here and couldn't find anything for Kyocera in NZ. UK yes, but not here apparently. I'll call them tomorrow. In the meantime I was seeing if anyone had a more generic solution.

    Big Red Bin and leave it to CCC to fill up Kate Valley and the "Y" generation will have it all sorted when that is full.

    Their big protest gatherings are using up the oxygen supply.

    lurking.

    Kyocera NZ do run a recycling program for used toners called KyoCollect. It is usually though their local agents.

    https://www.kyoceradocumentsolutions...u/default.aspx

    You can ring them on 0800 459 623 and they should be able to help you.

    Good stuff! I'll try them in the morning. I notice that is the .au website. There doesn't appear to be any mention of it on the .nz site.
