Many parts of toner or inkjet cartridges have parts that have a long service life, either in your printer or in the landfill. By recycling ink and toner cartridges it is good for our environment. The use of remanufactured ink cartridges keeps thousands of tons of industrial-grade plastic and metals out of our landfills each year.
The remanufacturing process for ink cartridges includes checking the integrity of the cartridge housing and integrated nozzle. Also checked is the electronic circuits. The drum is replaced and then filled with exacting ink or toner formulatios. Once the cartridge is refilled it is thoroughly tested to ensure it meets or exceeds OEM standards.

You can get remanufactured ink cartridges for about 30% less than what the standard OEM cartridges cost.
Another purpose for remanufactured cartridges is to help keep the printer makers from monopolizing the lucrative consumables market. Printer OEMs are quick to fight the whole remanfacturing market.
"Printer vendors have definitely ratcheted up the stakes and are becoming more aggressive as the cartridge-replacement industry approaches $3 billion in worldwide annual sales," says Patricia Judge, executive director of the IITC.
Some printer manufacturers are implanting smart chips in cartridges which can render a remanufactured cartridge incompatible with their printer. Usually a smart chip only monitors the ink supply available in a cartridge and will stop the printer with the ink has run dry. But some manufacturers have made their printers where they will not work until a new OEM cartridge is installed which has the appropriate smart chip in it.
Remanufacturers cannot install a new chip in their recycled cartridges and this move by the manufacturers can result in unusable recycled consumables.
Printer manufacturers may threat to void warranties if you use remanufactured cartridges. However, invalidating the warranty would violate the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act as well as being an infraction of antitrust laws. Many say that it is simply a scare tactic.
Many users of remanufactured inkjet cartridges swear by them. They say that they can't tell any difference in print quality over the more expensive OEM products.
