    Update:

    To date, I have sent two pallets to Liberty Laser. Both times they were able to coordinate free pick-ups that day, once within two hours of me making the call. I netted just shy of $70 for both pallets, which is less than I hoped for but probably better than I might have done, otherwise. I was able to move things out faster and in higher volume, which is my ideal. And frankly, most of what I get is what Staples won't take, like drilled-out units or China cores, which is what the public brings us. They are basically worthless but LL got them out of here for free. That has tremendous value. In the past, I have spent hours poring over toner buy lists and it's been about as profitable as metal detecting at the local ballfield. Even if I did lose a few bucks on the values in bulk shipment, per piece, it was a timesaver, one that let me put my attentions on stuff that has higher ROI.



    If you have room for an extra gaylord or two for all of your unsorted toners, boxed or otherwise, or if you have access to a steady stream of high-end toners like virgin HP and Brother stock, this is a worthwhile venture.

    No time to read this whole thread...So did we come up with a good buyer? I'll totally start pulling cartridges from the 6 pallets of printers I average per month. Mostly office style laser jets which should have some value. I just don't really want to spend the time sorting and grading if I'm not going to make much.

    I've been looking at them for a while. I have quit the pile. Was actually looking at setting up a "fund raiser" for my wife's daycare. It looks like schools and other organizations are not looked at as close in regards to testing, etc.

    A new person posted in another thread but I don't think she has tried them yet. I told her to post results here if she does.

    Have you looked at Planet Green for the inks? That's our go-to but they don't handle toner. They also take weird crap like FitBits, calculators, and phones. They payouts have been excellent, given the quality, and they've never stiffed us in over two years.

    LL has yet to reply to a third shipment request I put in almost nine months ago. The industry people I've talked to seem to agree that the toner buyback world is essentially over, as the flood of cheap and non-reusable pieces have subsumed the demand for reclaimed carts.

    I loved TonerBuyer but we are just out of time at the shop to scan through buylists, at this point.

    We got our check today. $38.25, which is what we thought it would be. We sent in about 39 empty inkjets that ranged from 5 cents to 3 dollars, for a total of 32 dollars. We also sent in a few old unused new cartridges for 6.25 dollars. Shipping was paid by Dazz Cycle. We have a ton of laser toner cartridges to go thru, but will probably wait to see what happens with the coronavirus. It put a damper on prices for toner cartridges. Not enough people in offices for large demands.

    Just a note for anyone deciding to give this a shot. They do say that shipments recieved from individuals are scrutinized and circuit tested. Sounds like they were burned before by recyclers. If it is set up under a school or non-profit, they don't verify as much.
