Recycle your used printer cartridges!

23 September 2020

My office has recently become a Planet Ark collection point for used printer cartridges!

As part of their Cartridges 4 Planet Ark program, Planet Ark is recycling printer cartridges and soft plastics into road surfacing material called Tonerplas. To date, almost 2000kms of TonerPlas roads have been laid across Australia and for every one-kilometre section of two-lane local asphalt road, five tonnes of TonerPlas is used which equates to 530,000 plastic bags and waste toner from 12,300 cartridges.

Drop your used or old printer cartridges to the donation box in my office and help convert waste into valuable asphalt for building roads.
