re: Toner Material

There is a local company that processes waste toner to extract the copper, 
they then resell the copper.  Apparently toner is high in copper content 
and it is reasonably inexpensive to process.  You may want to check with 
local copper processors or other related companies and see if there is any 

I suspect a haul from Nova Scotia would be cost prohibitive, but depending 
on the volumes, the company near me may be interested.  They are Peninsula 
Copper Industries and are located in Hubbel, Michigan.  If there is 
interest, I can get contact information.
