‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’s Biggest Year Ever! Leave a comment


Last year the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ recycling program celebrated its biggest year since it began 15 years ago. So we want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that helped make that possible, especially to the top ten returners. Were you one of them?

In the last 12 months, Australians have made history by recycling a record 13,500 used printer cartridges every working day, making it the biggest year ever since the launch of the program. This is equivalent to 386 bathtubs of cartridges returned every working day or 6 backyard swimming pools every week! The 3.5 million cartridges collected in the last year are enough to produce around 4,500 pens or 168,000 rulers made from the recycled materials.

Together these and all the collection points have helped divert thousands of tonnes of non-renewable resources out of landfill and back into the economy. So a huge thank you from ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ and lets hope that 2017 will be even more successful.

Paul Klymenko, Planet Ark CEO, says thank you to all supporters of the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program
