    Recycling Cartridges May Not be Enough
    Ever
    since the first ink cartridges hit the market, consumers have been
    complaining of high cost and the waste that comes along with what seems
    to be an excessive amount of packaging.Ink jet recycling companies such
    as emptycartridge.co.uk, The Cartridge Family and InkJetCartridge
    Recycling have made great strides in encouraging consumers to recycle
    their used cartridges which reduce the amount of waste that formerly
    clogged landfills worldwide.It’s common knowledge that paper and
    plastic have been the biggest contributors to recycling programs due to
    environmental laws. One thing that many people don’t realize is that
    the recycling of plastic is quite an expensive process. Because of the
    expense, many recyclable plastics are shipped to less expensive
    facilities in Asian countries such as Vietnam and China where prices
    are lower and environmental laws aren’t as stringent. Out of the 90
    million kilograms of recyclable plastic collected in the UK, nearly 75
    percent was shipped to China for processing.

    The reasoning for
    recycling is still sound and the system has improved dramatically
    through the use of environmentally friendly inks. The advent of soy and
    vinegar inks has contributed a great deal to the reduction of waste
    created by the recycling process. In short, the new environmentally
    friendly inks aren’t damaging to the planet and the adherence to the
    plastic doesn’t create excessive waste. These inks also apply to paper,
    as well. Previously, much of the paper discarded couldn’t be
    effectively recycled due to the amount of chemicals injected into the
    paper fibers. These newer inks also eliminate a great deal of paper
    waste.These inks and the overall reduction of waste have allowed
    companies to compensate recyclers for their efforts. The next time you
    think about tossing that old cartridge, think again.
