Ink Cartridge Recyling

Most of us have inkjet printers at home or work. Next time when you have an empty cartridge, don’t throw it away!  Just put it in a Ziploc bag or the original cartridge box and bring it to the library.  We have a special recycling box near the front doors.  The Friends of the Library will be a small payment for each cartridge with a print head.  Not only will you be helping the library, but you will also be reducing pollution. Cartridges do not decompose for 1,000 years.  Empty cartridges can be remanufactured and reused. Get empties from friends, neighbors, and small businesses, too!  On average, a person uses two cartridges a year. The potential is huge!  Reduce pollution and raise funds for your library one cartridge at a time…You Can Help!
