Each year a staggering 375 million empty ink and toner cartridges are thrown away, with most ending up in landfills or in incinerators. To put this into perspective, put end-to-end this volume of cartridges would circle the earth over three times.
Furthermore, the plastics used in cartridges have a slow decomposition rate, ranging between 450 to 1000 years and added to this is the additional hazard is that they may also leak printer ink, polluting the surrounding environment.
Despite these shocking figures, it is estimated that only 20% to 40% of ink cartridges are recycled. Here at Norwich Print Solutions we are determined to reduce this vast wastage and prevent these harmful chemicals polluting our landscape, so we are proud to recycle ALL of our ink cartridges.
