Layne Beachley celebrating 15 years of Cartridges 4 Planet Ark with
15 year old students from Cromer High School, NSW
At the end of its fifteenth year, 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' has collected over 38 million printer cartridges which would weigh the equivalent of about 93 blue whales!
Our new target is to recycle 41 million printer cartridges before the end of March 2019 (the end of the sixteenth year). Together we can achieve this even greater milestone!.
As well as saving energy and resources, recycling diverts waste from landfill. Already 15,700 tonnes of printer cartridges have been collected by 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' giving new life and value to what would otherwise become complex waste.
