Printer cartridges are made up of a complex combination of plastics, metals, foam, ink and toner. Throwing them into landfill represents a waste of resources and contributes to the growing problem of electronic waste.
By recycling your cartridges you are helping to reduce this waste. There are collection boxes at some retail outlets and at Shire of Campaspe customer service centres.
