3. Are these remanufactured or recycled cartridges?

Yes.  It is not a widely known fact that MICR toner is an aftermarket product that is put into the cartridge toner hopper.  Each MICR Toner USA LaserJet MICR toner cartridge is made with a virgin core and has 100% new internal components to uphold the highest quality standards.  We sell to hundreds of business, educational, and financial institutes.  We are verified, trusted, and are more than confident we can save you money.

4.  What do I do with my used cartridges?  

MICR Toner USA is an environmentally conscious company and believe we should take care of the earth we are so blessed to be on.  That being said, upon request, pre-paid ARS return labels are emailed or faxed to return used cartridges.  When you are done with a cartridge, simply slap the pre-paid return label on the box of empty cartridges (up to 15 lbs. per box) and send it back to our authorized toner cartridge recycle center.  From there, the cartridges are broken down, separated, recycled and turned into park benches.   Our cartridge recycling program is free of charge an

Thank you for helping close the loop of recycling!

5.  Does using an aftermarket or compatible MICR toner cartridge void my printer warranty?

Absolutely not!  You have the right to use whatever products you’d like.  If someone tells you differently, they are simply not telling the truth.  It is a violation of the Sherman and Clayton Antitrust acts, and therefore illegal, for any manufacturer to require you to use their supplies exclusively unless it can conclusively demonstrate that other brands are incompatible with their equipment.  Use our laser MICR toner cartridges with confidence.

6.  Where can I buy other LaserJet toner cartridges, not MICR toner cartridges?
