The Search for Empty Cartridges – Berto Tosses It In
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. Every year, hundreds of millions of toner and inkjet cartridges are thrown into our nation’s landfills. These cartridges not only take up valuable space but waste priceless resources too.
The best solution is to find a printer cartridge remanufacturer who can reuse the empty cartridges. You can get paid for taking them in. They are worth something. The good news? You can actually get paid to dispose of your empty ink or toner cartridges and be environmentally friendly at the same time. Read more.
LD Products has some good advice too:
- go to Earth911.com to look for the nearest recycling center.
- look into some charities that give you money back for recycling cartridges like Cartridges for Kids, eCycle Group, and Recycle4Charity.
- your cartridges need to be received in good condition. Use bubble wrap or old newspapers to cushion them.
