I believe you're supposed to recycle them.

I think there are companies that may pick them up for you.

We're talking about a laserjet toner cartridge or xerox machine, right? Not an inkjet cartidge?

recycle at staples and get a couple dollars off next cartridge purchase.

You can also bring any cell phone or page to Staples (it benefits the Sierra club)

UPS had picked some toner from our work place (in Berkeley) (probably with an account).

office depot will give you a ream of paper or $3 off new toner for recycled toner cartridges.

You can, but you shouldn't. You can take it to Office Depot and they'll recycle it, plus give you a discount.

Office Depot will also allow you to recycle them, so will a lot of elementary schools.
