Where to recycle stuff in Krakow?

Apparently Poland does not participate in a recycling program for empty laser toner cartridges like many other countries, so does anyone know of an alternative method of recycling them in Kraków? I prefer not to throw them in the trash. Thanks for all constructive input!

That's because many, many companies will take them off your hands and will give you a discount on cartridges bought from them - for instance, the company I use will give you 20zl credit for each cartridge.

Merged: Recycling skillets in Krakow

I have several skillets that need to be replaced because the Teflon has started to chip away after several years of usage. I would like to recycle them here in Krakow, but I'm not exactly sure where I can do this. I could remove the handles and toss them into our plastic/metal recycling bin, but I'm not sure how the Teflon coating might affect their potential recyclability (is this even a word???). Any suggestions? Thanks!

metal recycling bin

I haven't seen a metal recycling bin yet.

I could remove the handles

In Poland it's against the law to dismantle white goods ;)

Just leave it near bins. Aluminium is highly prized among złomiarze. They will take it on its last journey to scrap yard.

Try calling a local thrift shop & ask what advice they recommend.
