Free Recycling for Ink Cartridges
According to The Energy Collective Group, more than 375 million empty cartridges are thrown out every year that is over a million cartridges a day that end up in landfills. For a print cartridge to fully decompose in a landfill site it can take up to 1000 years. These cartridges can leach toxins into the soil and ground water affecting agriculture, livestock, and wildlife.
Planet Green, a leader in U.S. remanufactured inkjet cartridges has launched a free mail-in ink cartridge recycling program. The new DoorStepInk Recycle program provides individuals with a free USPS mailing label to recycle their used inkjet cartridges from their home or office.
Residents are able to recycle ink cartridges in three easy steps:
Step 1: Visit the dedicated website www.doorstepinkrecycle.com
Step 2: Fill out the online form to receive a postage paid label via email.
Step 3: Affix the label to any box, and send back the cartridges to the Energy Collective Group.
