Established in 1991, Vermont Toner Recharge was started at the home of its founders. It grew so fast that the couple had to move the operations to the top of the old soda bottling building on Pine Street in Burlington. They added employees and a company vehicle for deliveries. Then to give better access to the business for customers and employees, VTR moved to Williston in 2006. Then to further improve access and community involvement, the company moved to its present location in the Fort Ethan Allen Complex in 2017.
Remanufacturing toner cartridges has the same intention as keeping used cars on the road, but instead of being cursed with rusting metal, toner cartridges are made up mostly of plastic that lasts longer than the working metal parts of the cartridges. Those working metal parts are easily replaced, as well as working plastic parts. The “gas” in toner cartridges is the powder commonly known as toner, or “dry ink”. Unfortunately, there is no “gas tank” that you can pour toner into at a “toner station”. That is where we come in. We take the used toner cartridges completely apart, remove any worn parts that won’t last another cycle, clean out the reusable parts, and then replace the worn parts with new parts, fill-up the toner hopper with new toner, and then reassemble the whole thing and test our result in a compatible printer, just like the ones our customers use.
We guarantee our remanufactured toner cartridges to perform as well or better than the original toner cartridges made by the printer manufacturers. We warrantee our products for one year – mostly due to the fact that the parts within the cartridges are designed to be moving on regular intervals instead of motionless for long periods.
