[GreenYes] Ink Cartridges


Envirosmart recycles ink jet cartridges and cell phones. Many groups
participate in the Envirosmart programs. Sherry Tracey, with AAA
Environmental Inc., would be able to further explain these programs to
you. As well as tell you what happens to the ink jet cartridges, and
what companies participate in the recycling program. I am not positive,
but, I don't think Epson remanufactures their cartridges. But again,
Sherry Tracy will have all of this information.

Hello All,

CRI receives many inquiries through our two websites, generally having
to do with container recycling or container deposit laws. I could only
answer the following question with...."I sure hope they're recycled."
Here's the question. . . "Can you tell me what happens to computer ink
cartridges after you drop them off to be recycled." If anyone has
firsthand information on ink cartridge recycling would you be so good as
to respond to me and to Ryan Golembiewski [agteach@no.address]?

Thanks,

Pat Franklin
Pat:

There was a fuss over Epson's claiming to be recycling cartridges when
they were actually being incinerated. For example:

I don't know how this played out.
