ALBANY, GA — Copiers and printers are a big part of our home and work environment but if you’re not recycling the ink cartridges you may be hurting the world’s environment. Even with modern technology and the push to go paperless people are printing more than ever and millions of empty print cartridges are needlessly ending up in our landfills.
These hard plastic cartridges can take up to 1000 years to decompose. They take about a gallon of oil to manufacture and most of them could and should be refilled
You can refill cartridges yourself but that can be messy and not very cost effective. Cartridge world can save you money and the trouble of refilling cartridges and they will even deliver your purchases right to your home or office!
Cartridge world sells new and remanufactured cartridges for just about anything that prints. They have programs to help recycle cartridges and even sponsor a rewards program to benefit local schools.
