With ink cartridges from printers and photocopiers contributing to a significant amount of landfill waste, environmentally conscious companies are joining Blueprint in making a great effort to reduce the carbon footprint that our services and products can have on the environment.
Blueprint proudly offers a free, easy and environmentally-accredited cartridge recycling service to our partners. Since its inception, and now for over ten years, Cartridges for Planet Ark has recycled over 20 million used cartridges!
Recovering Resources and Reducing our Footprint
Cartridges represent a significant investment in resources thanks to their complex mix of plastics, metal, inks and toners. When they are disposed of into landfills, these resources are lost. In an effort to reclaim those resources, Planet Ark has joined with Close the Loop and participating manufacturers to set up the innovative ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program.
By collecting used cartridges from your printers and photocopiers, we can keep them out of our country’s landfills by either remanufacturing or recycling them. Planet Ark is successfully partnering with leading brands in the industry to achieve this goal, and our Melbourne recycling partner Close the Loop is independently audited on an annual basis for its zero waste to landfill guarantee.
Get Registered and Start Recycling
The program is free to Blueprint customers. Simply register for a collection bin and your used cartridges will be collected and recycled by Cartridges 4 Planet Ark. Contact us for more information.
This program is one of the most successful of its type in the world. For more information on how you can get involved, visit www.cartridges.planetark.org.
