PRLog - Jul. 26, 2012 - PAIGNTON, U.K. -- The UK Cartridge Supplier Refresh Cartridges have recently partnered with the International Tree Foundation to give any individual or business an easy way of recycling their empty printer cartridges at the same time as providing funds to a worthy cause.

In 2006 approximately 120 million toner and inkjet cartridges were sold throughout Europe with only around 25% of these units being recovered for re-use.  It is common knowledge that printer cartridges are primarily constructed using oil so pushing this scarce, non-biodegradable resource in to landfill is not only environmentally wasteful but, as the empty units are usually worth selling to the remanufacturing industry, it is also economically wasteful.

In order to offer this scheme the company have teamed up with one of the UK’s largest Printer Cartridge Recycling Companies who currently prevent approximately 2,500 tonnes of printer consumables entering the waste stream.  This company don’t pick and choose what is recycled based on the residual value of the cartridge but recycle literally any cartridge based product that is sent to them.

Refresh Cartridges aren’t taking a commission from this scheme or make anything from the arrangement, but it is hoped that this commitment to environmental sustainability will be noted by their customers.  All monies raised are passed to the ITF so they can continue their important work planting trees and protecting forests both at home and overseas.

Those customers wishing to participate in the scheme can arrange a collection or obtain a freepost return address for their cartridges by visiting the Refresh Cartridges Recycling Page at http://www.refreshcartridges.co.uk/igloo/cartridge-recycl...
