Printer Cartridge Recycling Is Part of Waste Management’s Sustainability Goals
Waste Management has joined with Cartridge World Group Holdings Pty Ltd and Cartridge World North America, LLC in launching a new recycling program aimed at increasing the collection of used printer cartridges and the sale of remanufactured cartridges. This program will help Waste Management meet their goal of tripling the amount of recyclables it processes by 2020. The free “Recycle -2-Save™” program will be handled by WM LampTracker, Inc., a subsidiary of Waste Management, that will provide recycling kits for collection of the used ink and toner cartridges. Each kit includes: shipping to your facility, prepaid return shipping via UPS to the Recycling Center, recycling certificate, and promotion code to save on your next purchase of printer cartridges.
The cartridges will be remanufactured and sold at 20-40% less than original OEM cartridges and those cartridges that cannot be remanufactured will be shredded and recycled. The remanufactured cartridges will be sold through a co-branded site, Amazon.com/PrintClub.
“This is a win-win for customers that choose to take advantage of this program,” said Matt Coz, vice president Product Recovery Group, Waste Management. “Not only can customers recycle their used ink and toner cartridges in an environmentally responsible way for free, they can also buy the replacement supplies for their business’s needs at a substantial discount over new non-recycled cartridges. That is a GREEN story that every business, large and small, would love to take advantage of.”
“We know from our own research that the cost buying and replacing printer cartridges is a big concern of businesses and consumers. We offer a money-saving solution and our collaboration with Waste Management creates an easy way for customers to recycle their ink cartridges.” said Tom Fricke, chief executive officer, Cartridge World.
