Has anyone any experience of the recycling of Laser Toner Cartridges?

I've Googled it, and am now thoroughly confused

I recycle the Oki ones for my laser printer, not done one for a while though.

The toner cartridge box usually has a recycle bag in it. On the oki site there are instructions, plus you can download a free returns label from their site.

Not sure what printer you have, but for the oki recycle scheme, I pack the old toner cartridge into the recycle bag, put in box, seal, attach freepost label, take to post office, done. Quite simple once you've done it a few times.

It's a Samsung CLP325, but I got the Cartridges from Choice Stationary and they're their own brand as they were approximately 50% cheaper. Choice don't do recycling

This any good ?

They used to have collection bins at Currys PC World but I'm not sure if they still do this.

Cuurys/PCWorld will take just about any electrical or electronic product for recycling, whether you bought the item there or not. Toner cartridges are included.
