Why Recycle Your Cartridges?

Why is it Important to Recycle Printer Cartridges? It takes between 500 and 1,000 years for the plastic parts in a printer cartridge to decompose in a landfill.

In the UK, only 31% of all waste plastic gets recycled.  The majority of what’s left ends up in increasingly overfilled landfill sites. Some waste plastics are incinerated to produce energy, producing poisonous gases harmful to our atmosphere. Sadly, as well as filling up the UK landfill sites, far too many plastic products are finding their way into our oceans. That’s why it’s imperative that we commit to meeting EU recycling targets and cut the overuse of plastic products and recycle as much as we possibly can.

Here are a few more of the many environmental benefits:
