    STAPLES-CA WANTS TO COLLECT 2 MILLION
    EMPTIES CARTRIDGES BY EARTH-DAY

    retailer shows his commitment to protecting the environment

    RICHMOND HILL, ON, Feb. 2010 STAPLES Canada has collected 1.2
    million used cartridges to-date, with a goal of recycling two-million by
    Earth Day
    STAPLES Canada has collected over 1.2 million used ink/toner
    cartridges, as part of their Two Million Cartridge Challenge-an
    initiative to eliminate cartridges from landfills by ensuring they are
    properly recycled.STAPLES Canada president, Steve Matyas, toured
    SIMS Recycling Solutions, a recycling facility located in Brampton
    where millions of used cartridges are shipped and separated for
    recycling. The majority of cartridges collected by STAPLES Canada are
    recycled at SIMS, where they are shredded and separated into
    commodities, like plastics, which are reused in the manufacture of new
    products.

    “STAPLES Canada is a leader in the retail industry with
    its recycling initiatives. From monitors to cartridges they have made a
    large commitment to sustainability,” commented Chris Convery, SIMS
    Recycling Solutions.”I had a first-hand look at how these cartridges are
    divided and recycled. It amazes me to see how recycling cartridges can
    make a huge environmental impact. Everyone needs to do their part,” said
    Matyas. Two-million laser cartridges stacked end-to-end is equivalent
    to the height of approximately 1,240 CN Towers.

    The Two-Million
    Cartridge Challenge began April 22, 2009 – Earth Day – and ends on Earth
    Day, April 22, 2010.”Our first Challenge, The Million Cartridge
    Challenge, was a huge success with 1.3 million cartridges collected, and
    we know the Two-Million cartridge challenge will be as well,” commented
    Matyas.

    STAPLES Canada has been recycling used ink and toner
    cartridges for the past 15 years, along with rechargeable batteries and
    cell phones. STAPLES Canada also sells hundreds of eco-friendly products
    and is committed to several environmental initiatives as part of their
    community@work program, which focuses on the three Es: Environment,
    Education and Entrepreneurship.
