In just 10 years, a whopping 21,056,638 printer cartridges have been recycled through ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark'! That's 546 bags of cartridges a day or 6 cartridges every minute, equivalent to:
  • 9,777 tonnes of recovered e-waste 
  • The weight of 58 blue whales
  • The volume of 42 Olympic swimming pools 
  • One cartridge recycled for every Australian over 10 years old

All of these cartridges have either gone back to their manufacturers for re-use, or have been recycled.

This year we're aiming higher than ever before - we've set our target at 23 million recycled cartridges by the end of March 2014 and we need your help!
