    AN office supplies
    company has presented St Margaret’s Somerset Hospice with £500 – thanks

    delighted to be helping St Margaret’s by raising funds for them.“Our
    toner and inkjet cartridge recycling scheme not only helps raise vital

    extremely grateful that Samson Office Supplies have chosen to donate
    the funds raised from their cartridge recycling scheme directly to St.
    Margaret’s.“Thank you also to all the local businesses that have shown
    their support by participating in the scheme.”If your office is

    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. By allowing the school council to decide what to
    spend the money on means that the children feel really involved.”The
    scheme was run by Waveney Norse and Waveney District Council, both
    located in the Lowestoft area.
    Cartridge Collection Service – A New
    Environmental Green Initiative from Image2output Ltd

    Image2output Ltd have launched a new environmental green
    initiative with their inkjet Cartridge Collection Service for recycling
    purposes The free service is available to Epson wide format inkjet users
    operating within the UK.The procedure is straightforward, on request,
    Image2output supply a suitable box for the disposal of the Epson large
    format cartridges with labelling designed to encourage “green
    thinking”.When the box is full Image2output collect them and replace it
    with a new empty box at no charge.These cartridges are a particularly
    un-green issue as they comprise a small amount of electronics as well as
    ink and plastic so can generally only be consigned to landfill
    disposal.This initiative follows on from Image2out’s now well
    established efforts with longer inkjet rolls ( 45m & 60m) and custom
    sized widths (e.g. a4 / a5) which have already reduced waste, packaging
    and costs, (by as much as 50% for plastic end caps) Through its website welcome further ideas to improve the joint green
    credentials of suppliers and users by reducing industrial waste volume
    and costs further.

    Contact can be made through the website
    enquiry form ( to initiate the
    cartridge collection service.Users are also encouraged to “tell a
    friend” about this service with the online utility at
    publicity is being promoted with the downloadable posters advertising
    the users recycling credentials.
