Answers to FAQs

Do I have to print out a new label if my toner cartridge came with a Newgistics USPS® SmartLabel®?
As a convenience to customers, a return shipping label is included with many of our toners. If you find a Newgistics USPS SmartLabel® in the box your toner arrived in, please use it to send the used toner back to Brother instead of printing a new label.
Which label should I use if my toner came with a UPS® label and a Newgistics USPS SmartLabel®?
As an added convenience to our business customers, we now include UPS® labels in select toner cartridge boxes. If your business is already a UPS® customer, use this label to recycle toner and include this package in your regular pickups. If you are a home-based consumer/business or a business that does not ship via UPS®, please use the Newgistics USPS SmartLabel® and follow the instructions above for return.
Who should I contact if I am having problems printing a label from the website?
Contact Brother customer service.
Can I photocopy and reuse a SmartLabel®?
No. It is against U.S. Postal Service regulations to photocopy and reuse a SmartLabel®. Please generate a new SmartLabel® for each return shipment.
Can I use these services to recycle my cartridges if I live outside the United States?
If you are not located in the U.S., please go to our global site to find out about your country’s recycling programs.
