Where can I recycle or donate my old HP inkjet printer?

I have a HP Photosmart 6520 that I don't use anymore & since I have got a laser multifunction recently, I am thinking to either recycle or donate it since I don't think I can get anything out of it.

Are there any places in Toronto GTA that can do electronics recycling or take donations?

Just wait until the schools open up and donate to them for furtherance to a needy student.

I believe you can drop it off at Best Buy, there's a spot for electronic wastes.

In case if someone wants to quickly test the printer :) (dont know about this particular one, but many printers have some sort of diagnostics mode, when they can print something out without need to be connected to computer) ...

Well, I never really bothered to top up the printer ink so I think it would be useless.

I would just put in at the curb. Someone would pick it up pretty quick.

I also have a similar question. I have some electronics and a few computer parts that are not working that id like to recycle responsibly. Best buy used to have a drop off but not anymore due to corona. Anyone know of any alternatives?

Who would want to spend $65 on a new cartridge to find out if your printer still works? You have something for the landfill.

That’s what I’ve been doing with household things I don’t need/want anymore. So far they’ve all been picked up by someone.

The last thing a needy student needs is the cost of running an inkjet printer. Do the world a favour and send it to recycling or landfill.
