    Waycam turn old toner cartridges into furniture
    Toner
    cartridges are normally sent to landfill at the end of their useful
    life, where the plastic will sit for hundreds of years before decaying.
    A company called Waycam, however, has an unusual solution to this
    problem; they turn the old cartridges into ‘plastic wood’ and make
    garden furniture out of it.The process recycles 100 per cent of the
    cartiridges, with all metal components being removed and sent off for
    recycling at another plant. The plastic is then recycled into TRI-wood,
    which stands for Toner Recycled into Wood.Toner cartridges cause all
    sorts of environmental problems: toner powder can also leak into the
    soil, which isn’t good news. Even worse, they are sometimes
    incinerated, releasing their stored carbon into the atmosphere.”Until
    now the only solution for Toner cartridges with no value or that have
    already been re-manufactured once was either land fill or
    incineration,” say Waycam on their website. “We accept all cartridges
    regardless of age, type original or re-manufactured and recycle all the
    parts without landfill or incineration.”Waycam can also handle
    recycling of computers, old electronic equipment and TVs. What they
    will think of to make out of those, we have no idea.
