Why we Recycle Toner And Ink Cartridges And How They Effect The World

Did you know that 375 million ink and toner cartridges are binned every year and more then 70% of them aren’t recycled, that’s approximately 262,500,000 ink cartridges and to be even more precise that’s 5 ink cartridges per second being dumped in landfills which is crazy to think about. However there is something you can do to help this problem and that’s taking them into your local ink shop for them to refill them and resell them or you could recycle them yourself.

Ink cartridges if not recycled could effect our planet quite a bit because of the ingredients they contain, for example cyclohexanone, sulphur and even ethoxylated acetylenic diols, which are incredibly harmful to us humans, and our planet. That’s why recycling cartridges is so important.

Luckily, there are now laser cartridges, which are more eco-friendly then others and could help reduce the waste produced from cartridges. Laser cartridges also don’t dry up even if left for a very long time, this makes it an even better option when buying toner cartridges for your printer.
