In today’s world printing became a need in order to communicate, study, present along with many other functions. What actually happen to all those empties toners, inks, ribbons, etc? 
 
Toner waste is hazardous waste. It can be “dangerous waste” or “non-dangerous waste” but all need a special recycling treatment which ends up being the same.

TRANSLATE LETTER MEROPI LETTER - PIO

Regards other territories we are waiting for an official Ministry of Environment respond.
Major Risk:
Among others the major risks are:
1.    Inhaling: As a fine powder, toner dust can remain suspended in the air for some period of time, and if this powder is inhaled into our lugs it cannot be exhaled from our body easily.
2.    Explosive: Toner particles have electrostatic properties by design. Because of this and the small particle size, toner should not bevacuumed with a conventionalhome/office vacuum cleaner static.  Discharge from charged toner particles can ignite dust in thevacuum cleaner bag or create a small explosion if sufficient toner is airborne.
 
Several University studies reported to have found that the microscopic particles in toners are carcinogenic.
