- Use the new toner's box to recycle the old one and stick the postage-paid form on it. Then drop it to the post office
 
 
 
- Alternatively you can print your own forms on [https://h30248.www3.hp.com/recycle/ereturns/ordermaterials-cs.asp?__cc=gb&__la=en&segment=ho&focus=IJ| HP recycle's site here].
