    Bega recycles cartridges
    june  2006
    AUSTRALIA Post congratulates its Bega customers who have recycled over 9,600 kilo’s of used printer cartridges during the past 12 months, through the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program.
    The outstanding figure that Bega customers have deposited in the cartridge recycling bins located in their local Post Office, has greatly contributed to the overall success of the program, which diverted over 700 tonnes from landfill in the last year alone.During the past year, Australia Post outlets across the country collected an amazing 115.9 tonnes of used printer, fax and copier cartridges in the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ recycling bins located in stores.Australia Post spokesperson, Sheridan Beattie, said that whilst these results are exceptional, we should all continue to make every effort to recycle our used cartridges, to give the environment a helping hand.”Used printer cartridges have a huge impact on the environment.”The plastics and metals that they are made out of don’t break down and toner dust can contain chemicals that are potentially hazardous to the environment, as they can leach from landfill into waterways and ground water.”Bega’s result is outstanding and indicates the strong desire people have to help the environment whenever they can.
