Planet Ark for printer cartridges

From the Planet Ark website:

”Australians send 34 printer cartridges to landfill every minute. We are determined to make our landfills the biggest loser by urging Australians to deprive their garbage bins of electronic waste.

Printer cartridges are made up of a complex mix of plastics, metal, inks and toners and thus represent a significant investment in resources. When they are disposed of into landfill these resources are lost. That's why Planet Ark joined with Close the Loop® and the participating manufacturers to set up the innovative Cartridges 4 Planet Ark program.

Items Accepted:

This program collects and returns cartridges for remanufacturing and recycling from:

to collectively take responsibility for the end life of their products. This voluntary Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program is one of the most successful of its type in the world. Help us save energy, water and resources by recycling your Cartridges 4 Planet Ark”.
