Leading Ink and Toner Retailer Launches Recycling Programme

The Supplies Group is the UK’s leading supplier specializing in selling compatible ink and toners. As part of its environmental policy The Supplies Group has partnered with Office Green, one of the UK’s leading recycling agencies, to develop a program that allows customers to recycle their used ink and toner cartridges free of charge.

According to The Supplies Group Ltd, over 60 million ink and toner cartridges were used in the UK in 2003, and less than 20% of those cartridges were recycled. Environmental Agency regulations have placed printer cartridges ink and toner on Waste List as an attempt to control the amount of ink and toner that goes to landfills each year.

As an effort to reduce this hazardous waste through recycling, The Supplies Group and Office Green have collaborated to develop a program which enables consumers to easily recycle their ink and toner cartridges. The program allows customers to get storage and collection boxes in which they place their cartridges they would like recycled. These boxes are provided free of charge to customers, and organisations who reach a certain number of qualifying cartridges are eligible for free recycling pickup. Those with a smaller number of cartridges to be recycled can drop their boxes off at a number of Office Green locations.

The recycling programme donates the full worth of recycled cartridges to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). Consumers can also get the worth of the cartridges back in the form of a cheque or can opt to donate the worth of the cartridges to a different charity.
