Ink Cartridge Recycling & Our Environment

Thousands of People are doing their part and Recycling for Earth Day 2022!

Think about this...350,000,000

Have you ever wondered where those empty inkjets go when they are out of ink? Most consumers throw away their empty ink cartridges when they have to replace them. It is important to understand that when an ink cartridge is ready to be replaced, a small portion of ink is still left inside. The printer cartridges that you’re used to throwing away still have many poisonous chemicals inside them.

Saving Our Environment

Over 350 million ink cartridges are thrown away every year adding to our nation’s landfills. That is approximately 30 million per month, and almost 1 million per day! When you break it down, you can see how much empty ink is accumulating. This is a worldwide issue. The average print cartridge contains dangerous plastics and polymers that can take 500 to 1000 years to decompose! These chemicals accumulate over time and show up on our lands and in our water. However, there is a way to help reduce the amount of ink cartridges thrown away.

Where We Come In

You're seeing the effects of ink cartridges if they are not recycled properly. Unfortunately, the chemicals in inkjet cartridges have been known to cause serious illness, or in some cases- death. If we don’t continue to spread the word about inkjet recycling, people will be exposed to these dangerous chemicals in our landfills…

For over 2 years, InkRecycling.org has been helping reduce these harmful pollutants from reaching our landfills while raising money for schools, businesses, and the average consumer. Become part of the InkRecycling.org family and you can raise money for your cause and help the environment at the same time. By joining our program, you are participating in a world wide effort to help rid the earth of these harmful pollutants.
