Printer cartridges are made up of a complex mix of plastics, metal, inks and toners and thus represent a significant investment in resources. When they are disposed of into landfill these resources are lost. That's why Planet Ark joined with Close the Loop® and the participating manufacturers to set up the innovative Cartridges 4 Planet Ark program.

This program collects and returns cartridges for remanufacturing and recycling - therefore keeping them out of landfill. Planet Ark is successfully working with Brother, Canon, Epson, HP and Kyocera to collectively take responsibility for the end life of their products. This voluntary Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program is one of the most successful of its type in the world. Help us save energy, water and resources by recycling your Cartridges 4 Planet Ark.
