    Cartridge recycling firm to employ hundreds
    November, 2008 AT least 100 Ugandans are to get jobs in a new cartridge recycling company.The Cartridge Centre, a subsidiary of UK-based Green Trees, the world renown cartridge manufacturers, started operations last month and is located on Kampala Road.
    “We want to help companies save money by recycling cartridges used in computers and photocopiers,” the centre’s director, Howard Bakojja, said.Bakojja said technicians, printers, laboratory assistants and casual labourers would be employed by the company.

    Bakojja who has just returned from a month long course in cartridge recycling in London, said they would also purchase old inkjet and laser jet cartridges from the public.
    “The machines we have clean, drain the ink from the used cartridges and re- polish it,” he said, adding that the recycled cartridges would be tested before delivering them to the users.
    “We are doing this to conserve the environment because a plastic item takes over 400 years to decompose. Why throw away a used cartridge yet you can have it recycled?”
    He said the firm would save companies millions of shillings in importation of cartridges.
