Frequently Asked Questions

1. How many times can a toner cartridge be remanufactured?
At TCR Services, we remanufacture each cartridge only once, replacing drum and any other parts that appear worn. (Once a remanufactured cartridge is sent back to us, we ensure that it is properly recycled.) We are so confident in the quality of our remanufacturing working that we unconditionally guarantee each remanufactured cartridge.

2. How does throwing away an empty toner cartridge harm the environment?
Over 38,000 tons of plastic and metal are saved from landfills each year as a result of cartridge remanufacturing and recycling. It takes approximately three quarts of oil to make the plastic in just one cartridge, and the plastic does not biodegrade. Remanufacturing and recycling toner cartridges helps to conserve natural resources, while saving you money.

3. How do cartridge remanufacturing and recycling cartridges save natural resources?
Approximately 3 quarts of oil are used to produce a new laser cartridge. In just 7 months, cartridge remanufacturing saves 11 million gallons of oil, more than which was spilled by the Exxon Valdez in Alaska's Prince William Sound in 1989.

4. Can remanufactured toner cartridges harm my laser printer?
Absolutely not! Although original equipment manufacturers would have you believe that you must buy their OEM cartridges at premium prices, remanufactured cartridges have a proven track record. TCR Services. has produced thousands of remanufactured cartridges, and not one has ever damaged a laser printer, copier, or fax machine.

5. Will using a remanufactured cartridge void my printer warranty?
No! Federal laws have made it illegal to require that printer, copier, and fax machine owners use only supplies provided by the original manufacturer. Even if your original vendor tries to convince you otherwise, you have the right to choose the cartridges you prefer.
