    SRI LANKA’s ABC TO WORK WITH INDIAN GOV TO COLLECT EMPTIES 
    RE-NEW
    STATION, a division of ABC Trade and Investments (Pvt) Ltd. engaged in
    professional ink / toner cartridge recycling and which introduced the
    printer cartridge recycling process for the first time in Sri Lanka, has
    signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Central Environment
    Authority in an e-waste management co-operation project.
    Under this
    project, the company will collect used and empty computer printer ink
    cartridges and toner cartridges by placing a special bin at private and
    state sector institutions. All these collected cartridges will then be
    recycled, the company said.

    ABC Trade and Investments (Pvt) Ltd.
    Director / CEO A. Jayaseelan explaining the motive of this initiative,
    said: “Most of the institutions regularly discard their used computer
    ink cartridges and toner cartridges which is a waste of money and
    hazardous to environment. In our project, we are focusing on reducing
    e-waste while protecting the environment and saving considerable amount
    of money to the consumer by reusing”

    He said that by recycling
    used ink/toner cartridges there is a huge protection of the environment
    as it takes four gallons of fossils oil to manufacture a single
    cartridge and over 300 years to biodegrade.“Re-manufacture enables us to
    reuse the same cartridge multiple times and prevents wastage of natural
    resources and landfill, as a developing country Sri Lanka too saves by
    way of reduced foreign exchange spending,” he said.

    Central
    Environmental Authority (CEA) Chairman Charitha Herath said e waste is
    rapidly expanding with the steady growth of new technology and the
    extensive use of computer and electronic equipment. The CEA is
    collaborating with 14 private sector parties on launching the programme
    on e-waste management.
