    Cartridge Worlds says, ”Please Don’t Feed the Landfill”
    EMERYVILLE,
    Calif. – april 08 A discarded printer cartridge can take up to 450
    years to decompose. With over 350 million cartridges thrown out every
    year, a mountain of e-waste is steadily forming throughout our nation’s
    landfills. Since printers are commonplace in every home office and
    business, it makes sense to reuse and refill empty ink and toner
    cartridges.As Earth Day approaches on April 22, it is the perfect time
    of year to remind consumers of the ways to create a “green” home and
    work environment. Implementing green practices at times can be costly
    but, by refilling printer cartridges at Cartridge World locations,
    consumers will actually save money and help the environment at the same
    time.Customers simply swap out an empty, original cartridge or purchase
    one already refilled and find a significant savings compared to buying
    new. Recycling bins are also stationed at all Cartridge World retail
    locations for the general public to drop off their empty
    cartridges.Businesses can also help protect the environment and save
    money by participating in the Business Direct program, which allows
    businesses to set up accounts with Cartridge World. Cartridge World
    then picks up the empty toner cartridges; refills and delivers each
    back to the business. Businesses are saving hundreds to thousands of
    dollars each year by using Cartridge World’s remanufactured and 100
    percent guaranteed products.“With our continued commitment to
    recycling, we look forward to the day when reusing and refilling
    cartridges is as common as separating waste materials in our homes,”
    said Peter Hasko, executive chairman of Cartridge World.

    Cartridge World reports ink and toner cartridge facts:
        * It takes about a gallon of oil to make a new toner cartridge.
        * Almost eight cartridges are thrown away per second in the United States
       
    * In North America alone, over 350 million cartridges per year are
    discarded in our landfills, and that number increases by 12 percent
    annually
        * Every remanufactured cartridge saves nearly 3.5 pounds of solid waste from being deposited in landfills
        * In one year, if the world’s discarded cartridges were stacked end-to-end; they would circle the earth over three times.
