Recycling cartridges

Please don't thrown them in the bin, we have now a simple process for this:

- use the already printed postage-paid forms you'll find on the office file shelf, under the sticker called "Recycling forms" (in the main room, on the left of Tesla)

- 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 HP recycle's site here.
