Recycle ink cartridges and raise cash for our school!
Each year, millions of inkjet cartridges are thrown away, with most of them ending up in landfills or incinerators. In the United States alone, approximately 11 cartridges are thrown away every second, resulting in a whopping 300 million cartridges that end up in landfills annually. For every 100,000 used cartridges recycled, it is possible to save around 1,000,000 litres of oil, 40 tons of plastic, 20,000 pound of aluminium, making ink cartridge recycling synonymous with sustainable development.
