There are 120 million printers in use today with millions more being sold each year. Each of these printers uses 5-25 cartridges each year. There are millions of empty printer cartridges being used each year and most of them are ending up in landfills.
Today nearly 60% of all homes have 1 or more printers. Nearly every kind of business and organization you can think of use printers. So you can only imagine how many inkjet and laser cartridges end up in the landfills.
It is currently estimated that over 1 million pounds of empty cartridges and cell phones are thrown into our landfills annually and this figure continues to rise.
Did you know it takes 3 quarts of oil to produce a laser cartridge and over 200 years for it to decompose?
Together we can significantly reduce the amount of waste that is going into our landfills. By recycling empty inkjets, laser cartridges and cell phones.
