Georgia Ink Cartridge Recycling Initiative

Georgia Ink Cartridge Recycling Initiative.

Toner Cartridges have a significant environmental footprint:

  • Over 375 million cartridges end up in landfills each year (total weight of these cartridges is equivalent to 112,463 Volkswagen Beetles).
  • Plastic takes 1,100+ years to decompose.
  • Our Landfills are at capacity and disposal fees are continuing to increase.
  • Chemicals from the cartridges are polluting soil and water supplies.
  • A large toner cartridge requires nearly 4 quarts of oil in its production.
  • Ink Jet and Toner cartridge remanufacturing saves over 38,000 tons of plastic and metal from landfills.
