For the first time, I have some HP laser toner cartridges to recycle. I can't find any way or where to send them, short of driving down to a facility in Kaiwharawhara, which seems the opposite intent of greening the planet... is there anywhere in central wellington that will take or buy these?

How about the Sustainability Trust on Foresters Lane (off Tory Street)?

 

Otherwise you could do what I did many moons ago and send back the part to HP headquarters with a passive aggressive note on their lack of recycling facilities.

Warehouse Stationary accepts toner cartridges for recycling, our local WHS has a big cardboard box at the front of the store for cartridges.  Massive kudos go to Brother for their recycling system.

A lot of companies used to do them, but I think they now just import refilled cartridges from china. I am guessing that the places that do accept them, they mainly then send offshore.

somewhere along the line theres going to be dumping involved.
At least in NZ it will go to a landfill , rather than down the drain or being burnt off in the open air.

Often, recycling is not as clean & green as many would believe. Its a dirty dirty buseness , unless someone spends vast $$$$ on
systems to do it properly. Thats not happening if it gets sent overseas .

 

When I worked for a recycler, I was told to tip the waste down a stormwater drain (I refused).
NZ Rubbish Dump is sometimes the best option .
