Ten million cartridges weigh approximately 4,742,000 kilograms - that’s about the same weight as 1,500 Asian elephants. Recycling these cartridges is good for the environment both in terms of reducing landfill and carbon emissions.

Workplace collection points can get Resource Recovery certificates that shows the number and weight of cartridges returned for recycling. The certificate can be used for environmental reporting purposes.
