This month Cartridge World – Cerritos encourages the Cerritos community to “refill” their commitment to Earth Day, April 22, 2012. This store is part of a large plan that is promoting recycling programs that help save the planet and help local organizations, schools and businesses save money.
Cartridge World offers three simple recycling programs:
* Cartridge World offers a recycling and fundraising program in which parents raise money for their local school by dropping off empty printer cartridges at the school. In exchange for the empty cartridges, Cartridge World will pay the school based on the quantity collected.
* Cartridge World provides drop-off recycling boxes for businesses, organizations and schools to collect empty cartridges.
* Customers may also recycle their empty ink and toner cartridges at Cartridge World – Cerritos.
Laser cartridges that are not recycled have a significant impact on the planet, taking up to 450 years to decompose. Plus, every remanufactured laser cartridge saves nearly 2.5 pounds of metal and plastic waste from being deposited in landfills.
“Cartridge World has a long standing commitment to recycling. Keeping printer cartridges out of overloaded landfills is a simple way to make a significant impact”, said Kunal Gorakshakar of Cartridge World – Cerritos. “Less than 10 percent of all ink and toner cartridges used in homes and offices are recycled. Cartridge World’s recycling programs are a win/win for everyone. We’ll encourage recycling at our store until it becomes second nature in our community.”
