Tips on getting rid of old printers
Donating and recycling printers are among the best ways to get rid of old models, it has been suggested.
A leading office supply commentator has offered tips on the best ways for users to get rid of their old printers.
Recycling printers does not necessarily mean the end of the unit's lifespan, as there are many ways in which working models can still be used, according to independent consumer commentator MyOfficePortal.com.
As "in most cases, you need to get rid of your old printer, not because it's busted but because you've upgraded to a newer model," one way to get rid of an old printer would be to donate it to a school or charitable organisation.
There are many groups around who not only use office equipment such as printers for themselves but that can also donate it to other organisations who have printing needs, the website suggests.
Alternatively, giving the unit to a friend or family member who could use it for studies or personal use can also ensure that the printer is not unnecessarily thrown away
