    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.
