Due to the increased need of printer and its cartridges, many people tend to throw the used ones and replace it with a new ink cartridge. This increases landfills or might also end up in incinerators. So, it is recommended that instead of throwing out the used cartridges, recycling and reusing it is a must.

Here, are some facts as well as benefits of recycling ink cartridges.


  • The printer cartridges are made of an engineering grade polymer that decomposes at a very slow rate depending on its type.
  • Some ink cartridges might also leak that might later pollute the surrounding environment.
  • If you dispose off ink cartridges in the garbage, it causes a great harm to the environment as well as the miniature life.
