A partner of ours is a global manufacturer of inkjet printers. They are trying to institute a responsible recycling program in Canada and the USA for their inkjet cartridges. The thought was that the cartridges would be collected at retail, sent to a distribution centre and then off for proper recycling.
Sounds simple enough but finding an appropriate recycling partner is more challenging than one would think. They have received offers from waste to energy companies but so far have not found any reasonable recycling possibilities.
Needless to say, we have advised them to steer clear of the burn option. Does anyone have any recycling contacts for inkjet cartridges.
