Businesses and Schools Go Green With Cartridge World

Recycling Printer Cartridges Saves the Planet and Reduces Costs

SPRING GROVE, IL--(Marketwire - Mar 26, 2012) - This month, Cartridge World encourages communities throughout the nation to "refill" their commitment to Earth Day, April 22, 2012. Six hundred Cartridge World stores across the U.S. and Canada are promoting recycling programs that help save the planet and help local organizations, schools and businesses save money.

Cartridge World offers three simple recycling programs:

  • Cartridge World offers a printer cartridge recycling and fundraising program in which parents raise money for their local participating school by dropping off empty cartridges at the school. In exchange for the empty cartridges, Cartridge World will pay the school based on the quantity collected.
  • Cartridge World provides drop-off recycling boxes for businesses, organizations and schools to collect empty cartridges.
  • Customers may also recycle their empty ink and toner cartridges at any Cartridge World store.

Laser cartridges that are not recycled have a significant impact on the planet, taking up to 450 years to decompose. Plus, every remanufactured laser cartridge saves nearly 2.5 pounds of metal and plastic waste from being deposited in landfills.

"Cartridge World has a long standing commitment to recycling. Keeping printer cartridges out of overloaded landfills is a simple way to make a significant impact," said Frank Case, President of Cartridge World North America. "Less than 10 percent of all ink and toner cartridges used in homes and offices are recycled. Cartridge World's recycling programs are a win/win for everyone. We'll encourage recycling at our 600 stores until it becomes second nature in every community."

Cartridge World makes recycling easy by providing recycle boxes to community organizations, schools and offices and picking them up when they are filled. To participate in a recycling program, call your local Cartridge World store.
