    Used printer cartridges coin in cash for hospice
    AN office supplies company has presented St Margaret’s Somerset Hospice with £500 – thanks to recycling used printer cartridges.Used inkjet cartridge collection boxes have been placed in offices right across the county and since Ilminster-based Samson Office Supplies joined forces with St Margaret’s back in June, used and unwanted cartridges have coined in the cash for the charity.Samson’s Dan Batten said: “We and our customers are delighted to be helping St Margaret’s by raising funds for them.“Our toner and inkjet cartridge recycling scheme not only helps raise vital funds for the hospice, but also reduces the amount of cartridges sent to landfill.”

    Primary School In Ink Cartridge Recycling Drive
    A primary school in Lowestoft, Suffolk, has taken part in a recycling drive of old ink cartridges and mobile phones.The Dell primary school took part in the Norwich-based RPC recycle scheme, which is a national fundraising campaign.Through collecting old ink cartridges and mobile phones, the school was awarded a cheque for £164.Beryl Hindes, head teacher of the school, told the Lowestoft Journal that they were “delighted to receive this cheque, and taking part in the recycling scheme was really simple.”She added: “Everyone at the school has been involved and we will keep collecting. It has been a great way to promote the importance of being green and raise extra funds too.
