While most of us are experienced with paper, glass, and plastic recycling, how many of us are conscious that it is also possible to recycle printer cartridges? Payless Cartridges have mastered the art of cartridge recycling and have been doing this for many years now. We are dedicated to keeping printer cartridges out of the landfill. Read on to find out all the reasons and how you should contact an ink cartridge center in your Vancouver locality.
Why should I have my Cartridge Recycled?
34 printer cartridges are sent to landfill sites across Canada every minute, which adds up to about 18 million a year. You are helping to reduce air and water emissions associated with landfilling and incineration by opting to recycle your printer cartridges. You can also save the natural resources used to make new cartridges, which will help save the energy used to produce new cartridges, thus reducing carbon emissions.
Each part of a printer cartridge can be used to recycle into new products instead of generating millions of tons of non-biodegradable waste sitting idle in the landfill, so there is really no reason for wasting such a valuable resource. The advantages are not purely environmental either. As a person or as a company, purchasing re-manufactured or refilled printer cartridges from a reliable ink cartridge center will provide better value for money.
What needs to be done with an Empty Printer Cartridge?
Did you know that most printer cartridges can be refilled at least 5-7 times? So, even before you look at recycling, by opting to refill your printer cartridges rather than throwing them away once they are empty, you can do your bit for the environment. Based on the type of printer cartridge you use, you can get expert advice from your local Vancouver ink cartridge center about the options available.
From where can I Recycle my Cartridges?
Used printer cartridges will be made available for processing by the local ink cartridge centers and brought to specialist recycling plants for dismantling and re-use – it’s as simple as that.
Under the new partnership, by paying for the disposal of all branded cartridges, Payless Cartridges will take full responsibility for ethical sourcing of the printer cartridge products. This dedication shows how we are leading the way in encouraging environmental protection while educating customers about the value of recycling cartridges.
