Cartridge World

The common printer cartridge is one of the most important pieces of equipment that help people at home and work everyday. It's one of those things that people always take for granted and never pay attention to unless of course they run out of ink or toner and their pages come out blank. Most people don't realize some very important facts about printer cartridges.

  • It takes about a gallon of oil to make a new laser cartridge.
  • Almost 8 cartridges are thrown away per second in the United States alone!
  • In North America alone, over 350 million cartridges per year are discarded in our landfills, and that number increases by 12 percent annually!
  • A laser cartridge thrown into landfill can take up to 450 years to decompose. Some components made of industrial grade plastics will take over a thousand years to decompose.
  • Every remanufactured cartridge saves nearly 3 and 1/2 pounds of solid waste from being deposited in landfills.
  • 70 percent of used printer cartridges throughout the world are currently being thrown out.
  • In one year, if the world’s discarded cartridges were stacked end-to-end, they would circle the earth over three times.

Every single cartridge saved from a landfill makes a difference. But imagine the difference made when 1,000,000 or even 1,000 cartridges are saved? This will not only protect our environment but save consumers thousands of dollars. Now imagine the difference when individuals, then organizations, then cities, then states and then nations start participating! That is Impact with Effect! At Cartridge World we are not only making a difference, we are changing the world!

In addition to being environmentally responsible, Cartridge World and recycling cartridges also creates jobs locally. Every cartridge is recycled and remanufactured and in the community that the Cartridge World store serves. It is important that the following message gets out to the 80% of printer users who dispose of their printer cartridges.

  • You don't have to throw out your expensive printer cartridges. Most printer cartridges can be remanufactured, refilled or reloaded.
  • By bringing your used cartridges to Cartridge World, you can help protect our environment, and save 50% compared to the cost of a new cartridge!
  • Cartridge World is dedicated to saving consumers, businesses, and the planet!
