Ozeinks recommends "eccosave" for all your recycling requirements.
Each year in Australia over 11 million ink and 3 million laser cartridges are imported in Australia. Approximately 80% of these cartridges are destined to end up as landfill, leaching chemicals and taking many hundreds of years to break down. eccosave is a cartridge collection program established to divert the disposal of these empty cartridges from landfill.
The good news is getting involved is both easy and FREE! To get started simply contact Eccosave on Ph:1800 058 044 to organise a collection bin to be sent to your business premises. When full, call us back and we'll organise it to be collected along with the delivery of a replacement bin.
The cartridges collected are then sorted and where possible components are re-used, this saves precious resources otherwise consumed by the creation of new cartridges. If they are not suitable for re-use they are recycled, this prevents them from ending up as landfill.
