- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (petchary.wordpress.com)
In North America, more than 40,000 tons of plastic and metal is saved from landfills annually as a result of cartridge recycling. For every 100,000 used cartridges recycled, we can save 9599 kilograms of aluminum, 40 tons of plastic, and 1,000,000 liters of oil. Ink cartridge recycling has virtually become synonymous with successful sustainable development.
Now imagine the exponential savings by reusing those cartridges BEFORE recycling them. Reuse is the highest form of recycling which is why remanufacturing is the ideal way to give used inkjet and toner cartridges another life – a life which doesn’t include being abandoned in a landfill where it can take more than 1,000 years for the cartridge to decompose.
Here are just some of the reasons to reuse/recycle cartridges:
It reduces air and water pollution/emissions associated with landfilling, incineration or the manufacturing of new cartridges.
It conserves our natural resources such as timber, water, oil/petroleum and minerals because it reduces the need for raw materials.
It helps save energy.
It decreases emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change.
It helps us sustain the environment for future generations.
Inkjet refills are much cheaper than purchasing new inkjet cartridges each time your ink runs out. If you have an inkjet printer and you do a lot of printing whether it is for home or business use you will know that replacing the cartridges can be a costly business. Inkjet refills can help save you a fortune if you get through a lot of ink. Companies that offer inkjet refills and printer ink refills will be able to refill most major brands of cartridges. They will sell printer ink refills to you and recycle your old empty ink cartridges.
This also helps to save the environment as there is much less waste produced if you refill your old cartridges compared to if everybody just threw them away and bought new ones every time. Many companies will sell universal ink that says it will work in any manufacturer’s cartridge but this may not be the best option. Good quality inkjet refills will include a priming tool and these are not commonly available with most generic printer ink refills. Good suppliers will sell inkjet refills that are for specific brands of printer such as HP, Lexmark or Hewlett Packard. Different brands use different ink formulations so good inkjet refills will be created so they are the same ink formulation as the original to produce just as good quality printing results.
