Why Should Offices Recycle Their Printer Ink Cartridges?

Businesses should take part in a printer ink cartridge recycle scheme so that they can play their role in helping Britain become more environmentally friendly.

The majority of cartridges are made from recycled material and can start life all over again if they are saved in a container and traded in, instead of simply being thrown away.

Cartridges can either be refilled or stripped down and reconstructed. Worn parts will be replaced by better functioning pieces which ensures that the new product works as well as a brand new one.

There are many advantages to the environment by using recycled cartridges. To start with, there are less pollutants going into landfill sites, while energy used in producing new products will also be reduced.

Recycling cartridges can also help charities raise vital funds, with Macmillan Cancer Support looking for people to hand in their old printer ink devices and mobile phones in the Hull area.
