    Neighbours in business recycle 25,000 ink cartridges
    The
    Sutton Coldfield branch of the Smart Cartridge franchise has managed to
    recycle and reuse 25,000 ink cartridges since the company was launched
    in November 2005 and has increased its business-to-business stationery
    supplies stock to 20,000 items.The branch owners are neighbours Graham
    Jones and Stewart Ellis who decided to go into business together
    because of their shared interest in helping the environment and
    sport.Graham said: “We share a common awareness of our respective
    sports and different skills and this has carried on in our working
    relationship. We both want the same goal for the business and recognise
    that our different personalities and skills is a benefit that can only
    help us achieve this.

    Smart Cartridge helps businesses and
    domestic clients with the changes to the Landfill Directive Laws. The
    legislation requires non-hazardous waste to undergo treatment before
    disposal in order to help fight the environmental issues surrounding
    landfill sites.Stewart explains: “More than 30 million inkjet
    cartridges are dumped each year in the UK alone, which is shocking when
    you consider the plastic used in a typical cartridge is made of
    engineering grade polymers that take at least 1000 years to
    decompose.”We proactively encourage local home users, businesses,
    schools, offices, clubs, the healthcare sector and other organisations
    to recycle and re-use their empty cartridges. We also offer branded
    recycling bins, which organisations throughout the country can use to
    collect empty cartridges. The cartridges are remanufactured and
    returned the same day, during which time they have been fully cleaned,
    remanufactured and tested to guarantee 100 per cent printing quality -
    all at no extra charge.”This is something that businesses should be
    taking very seriously as it means the onus is on them to make sure
    their waste is dealt in the proper environmental manner or they will be
    fined as per the new legislation.”The company was established in 2001
    in Edinburgh and now has 60 franchised outlets worldwide. Smart
    Cartridge focuses on ink cartridge refills and laser cartridge
    remanufacture and over the past few years has expanded its range of
    products to include stationery, specialist papers and own brand
    compatible cartridges.
