We're celebrating 40 million cartridges saved from landfill
Author: Claire Bell
Cartridges 4 Planet has not only been celebrating 15 years in 2018 we're also celebrating over 40 million cartridges collected by the program since 2003.
Passing the 40 million mark is a significant milestone and is a collaborative achievement between the participating manufacturers Canon, HP, Brother, Epson, Kyocera and Konica Minolta, our program manager, Close The Loop, and our collection retail partners including Officeworks, Australia Post, JB Hifi, The Good Guys and Harvey Norman.
This collaborative partnership ensures that cartridge collection boxes are available to workplaces and the public across the country, with collection and recycling paid for by the manufacturers the program is able to offer the recycling of cartridges for free.
We'd like to say thank you to all our partners and the countless Australians who recycle their cartridges giving them new lives in road surfaces, pens and recycled artists ink.
We look forward to continuing this success in 2019!
