This announced increase does not include ink. Additionally, HP is increasing the price on select parts, drums, and maintenance kits.

  2. Recycling your toner cartridge will be a great step to save the environment. It is made up of carbon and emits sulphur during manufacturing which is dangerous. A single cartridge can be recycled 3-4 times.
