Ashfield Council is encouraging all residents to recycle their used cartridges through the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program. In the past year, 3.3 tonnes of printer cartridges per day were diverted from landfill through ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ and since the program began in 2003, over 24 million cartridges have been recycled!
As well as toner powder, printer cartridges contain other valuable materials such as steel, aluminium, copper, ink, plastics, rubber, silica and foam, much of which can be recycled. These recycled materials can be turned into pens, rulers, chemical spill clean up kits, and in eWood™ applications such as park benches, fencing and signs.
