    1,740 TARGET STORE TO NOW COLLECT EMPTY CARTRIDGES 
    Target Opens Recycling Centers in All 1,740 Stores
    Minneapolis based Target  announced Tuesday that it is rolling
    out a massive nationwide
    recycling initiative with centers at the
    front of each of its 1,740 U.S. stores. The recycling stations will
    accept aluminum, glass and plastic beverage containers, plastic bags,
    MP3 players, cell phones and ink cartridges”The launch of store
    recycling stations allows us to continue to partner with [our guests] to
    curb unnecessary waste in our stores and our communities,” said Shawn
    Gensch, vice president of brand marketing, Target.

    Over the
    course of the last several months, retail chain Target has ramped up its
    sustainability programs and image, partially in response to retail
    giant Walmart’s big push to become more sustainable, which includes
    programs to green its supply chain, use less energy and produce less
    waste.        

    But Target isn’t just copying the sustainability
    programs their friends down in Bentonville, Arkansas are rolling out
    (though they should probably copy some of them), they’re forging their
    own path with some unique programs of their own, recently announcing
    they would no longer sell farmed salmon.

    And whether they would
    admit to it or not, the Target recycling move puts a bit of pressure
    back on Walmart to up the ante, thereby contributing to a kind of ’race
    to the top’ — at least until the term was commandeered by the Obama
    administration.
