3 Reasons to Practice Ink Cartridge Recycling, Staten Island, New York

Many homes and businesses have made efforts to become more environmentally friendly in recent years. From reducing paper-intensive processes to recycling materials like plastics, today’s practices aim to reduce the carbon footprint we leave behind on our world. Yet, there’s one practice many homes and businesses tend to overlook: ink cartridge recycling. Take a look at a few ways in which recycling your ink cartridges and toners can have a huge beneficial impact on the environment. 

Recover Materials

You might not think your used ink cartridge or toner could serve any purpose when it’s run dry, but in fact, their components are still very useful. The plastic, metal, and even trace amounts of ink can be recovered and recycled for producing new or re-manufactured ink cartridges. Therefore, even when they’re completely used up, toners and ink cartridges should never go in the trash.

Use Fewer Resources

Reducing the need for raw materials helps to conserve our natural resources, including water, oil, timber, and minerals. The amount of energy used to produce new cartridges is also reduced.

Reduce Environmental Impact 

Like other types of production, the process of manufacturing new ink cartridges and toners creates pollution and emissions. Recycling toners and cartridges reduces these emissions and helps reduce the overall environmental impact created by homes and businesses. It also reduces the amount of landfill waste, which is a growing concern for current and future generations.
