Consider these facts:
- More than 300 million printer cartridges end up in our landfills on a yearly basis. That translates into more than $450 million being thrown away.
- Approximately 90% of printer cartridges are recyclable but only 20% are being recycled. Excess ink and toner can filter into our water supply.
- More than two ounces of oil are used for the production of every inkjet cartridge. That means we're going through more than 4,000,000 gallons of oil for single-use cartridges each year.
- The recovery and reuse of empty printer cartridges diverts millions of cubic feet of material from waste disposal, saving us the millions of tax dollars needed to pay for additional landfill management.
