Current Target - 34 Million Cartridges by March 2017
At the end of it's thirteenth year, 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' has collected over 31 million printer cartridges which would weigh the equivalent of about 79 blue whales!
Our new target is to recycle 34 million printer cartridges before the end of March 2017 (the end of the fourteenth year). Together we can achieve this even greater milestone!.
Simply take your used printer cartridges to your nearest retail drop off box or if your workplace has a cartridge collection bin, you can recycle your household ink cartridges at work.
As well as saving energy and resources, recycling diverts waste from landfill. Already 13,400 tonnes of printer cartridges have been collected by 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' giving new life to what would otherwise become complex waste.
