    Cartridges 4 Planet Ark

    It has been estimated that over 80% of our used cartridges are going directly to landfill.

    Australians throw away more than 18 million cartridges every year.

    This amounts to over 5,000 tonnes of material, including photocopier toner bottles and drums, that will eventually end up in landfill. That's why Planet Ark has launched Cartridges 4 Planet Ark.

    That's why we want you to put them in our bin, NOT the garbage bin!

    Placing Old cartridges into landfill can cause problems for the environment. Planet Ark is working with B face=Arial color=#0000ff Close The Loop™/B, an Australian hi-tech recycling company, to prevent these problems. The recycling technology is so advanced that nothing goes to waste.

    Most laser cartridges are sent to the original equipment manufacturers for their remanufacturing or component recovery programs. All inkjet cartridges, toner bottles and laser drums are processed to recycle their component materials into new products.

    The component materials recovered include aluminium, steel, plastic, toner, ink and foam. All are recycled into new products or reused in new applications. Even residue toner is reused as pigment for colouring plastic products.

    Australia's printer industry is supporting the effort, with BrotherCanonHewlett-PackardLexmarkKonica MinoltaEPSON andPanasonic sponsoring this world-leading program and covering the cost of collecting and recycling the cartridges.

    Cartridges 4 Planet Ark is the ultimate printer cartridge recycling solution. YOU can get involved.

    The public can drop off their used cartridges in specially marked boxes at participating Australia Post and Harvey Norman outlets. A full list of collection outlets are listed at http://www.RecyclingNearYou.com.au

    So don't waste your waste – donate your Cartridges 4 Planet Ark.
