      I think it's supposed to mean "to throw away nicely", i.e. not into the
      bin, but into wherever you're supposed to put spent ink cartridges so
      that elves can disassemble them to primary components and make shiny
      new things out of them..

      Recycled does mean to be used again, but usually after being
      disassembled and re-used as melted/repocessed, IMHO.. it certainly does
      in this case.

      And of course the manufacturer will tell you to throw away everything
      and go and buy it brand new (original only)..
