Why should I recycle my ink cartridge?
Only 10% of cartridges are recycled. 90% are binned and end
up in landfill sites. They take thousands of years to biodegrade.
We throw away more than 31 million printer cartridges every year in
the UK and over 500 million worldwide. Sending cartridges to landfill
sites needs to be reduced. Landfill sites have been investigated as
the possible cause of birth defects, cancers and respiratory illnesses
including asthma. In the UK, space set aside for landfill is due to
run out in the next five to ten years. Something else needs to be
done with our empty cartridges!
Will a Remanufactured Toner Cartridge damage my printer?
Of course not. A remanufactured cartridge is basically the
same as an original cartridge except some of the remanufactured components
are replaced with new ones in order to allow for another printing
cycle. The exterior casing can be reused as many times as possible
if it's not broken. Therefore, if you can put the original cartridge
inside your printer, you can also put a remanufactured toner cartridge
without damaging the printer.
Can all cartridges be recycled?
You can recycle your ink cartridge if you have the following
makes of printer:
Apple, BT, Canon, Dell, HP, Lexmark, Olivetti, Philips, Samsung, Sharp
What will happen to my ink cartridge?
Your cartridge will be recycled. This means that the empty
cartridge is carefully taken apart and cleaned, refilled and tested
for quality. The recycled cartridge is then resold.
Does recycling cartridges really help the environment?
Most cartridges can be reused at least 2 - 3 times. So cartridge
recycling can dramatically reduce the number of cartridges going to
landfill. So cartridge remanufacturing can dramatically reduce the
number of cartridges going to landfill. If everyone recycled their
cartridge there would be a huge reduction in cartridges going to landfill
sites! The reuse of empty cartridges means less new ones need to be
made, which saves energy and the planet's natural resources like aluminium
(bauxite), oil and timber.
Why should I buy a recycled cartridge?
Because valuable resources are saved when a cartridge is
reused, recycled cartridges cost less than original branded products.
So recycled cartridges are cheaper as well as greener!
