Printers and fax machines can usually be recycled at yards that accept e-waste. Although your best bet is to take them apart and take the metal and circuit boards out because they are mostly plastic, you can scrap them as full pieces and still earn a few dollars with the Printers/Fax Machines Scrap Prices. If you have Printers/Fax Machines for scrap, ask your local scrap yard if they accept them.
Some scrap yards may pay you scrap price for them, but don’t be surprised if they offer to just recycle it for you. There is so much plastic in the units that it isn’t worth the money for them to pay you for it. You can take the components out from inside and separate them with your other e-scrap materials. Prices for fax machines and printers have many different factors involved.
