Really? I'd have to check some nearby Staples or Best Buy then. I have like 13 empty non-OEM toners. Should I toss the boxes they came in, and just take the toners alone? I've never done this before. I've only shipped out empty OEM ones to be recycled/sold.

I'll probably go with a local store, as it's not worth it for us to send these out for discounted cartridges from their website. Thanks a lot for the responses, again should I take the toners alone. I do have like 13 of them in their boxes.

you can keep them in the box or a he plastic so an toner/ink does not get on your hands or car when bringing them over.

Always use a local store if possible, I have found that not all Staples, officemax or OfficeDepot accept all all cartridges. I would recommend calling first , some even give a partial credit towards new cartridges as well.

I took them to a local Office Max. They credit you $3 dollars for ea., and you can bring in five a day. Up to $15 dollars store credit/discount a day. It doesn't accumalate though. I'll get ride of five more tomorrow. Thanks for the responses!
