Cartridges for Planet Ark
Australians throw away more than 18 million printer cartridges every year. This amounts to over 5,000 tonnes of material that will eventually end up in landfill.
When printer cartridges break apart in landfill, they have the potential to contaminate groundwater and the environment.
Printer cartridges from participating manufacturers are accepted in the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program. This includes inkjet cartridges, laser cartridges, toner bottles, fuser and drum units, fax rolls, print heads, waste hoppers / containers collectors and kits.
Next time you change the cartridge in your printer, don't dump it - recycle it!
You can recycle your printer cartridges at Council's Community Contact Centres in Warwick and Stanthorpe.
For further information on the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program, including the participating manufacturers, and other local businesses where you can dispose of cartridges, please visit the Cartridges 4 PlanetArk website.
