Some of the toner cartridges and inkjet cartridges have different purchase prices even though they look a like. To help you differentiate between the cartridges, we have listed the respective types as follows.



Canon E30 Japan/China and Canon E30 France cartridges

Canon E30 Japan/China and Canon E30 France cartridges

Those cartridges labeled with "JAPAN" or "CHINA" refer to cartridges that are recyclable and unglued. These cartridges are easy to recycle because the upper and lower sides are only screwed on. Therefore, you will receive a higher refund for this type of cartridge.



Those cartridges labeled with "FRANCE" on the front side refer to cartridges that are glued. The recycling process for these cartridges is much more difficult than the recycling process for the cartridges labeled "JAPAN" or "CHINA" since the cartridges labeled with "FRANCE" must be split or sliced before they can be recycled. Consequently, cartridges that were produced with the so called bonding technology can only be refunded at a lower price when returned empty.
