Ink cartridges are one of the most under recycled items in the industry today. This comes as a big shock when we consider how easy it is to recycle your old ink cartridges. There are many recycling companies who now offer to pick up your cartridges for free and will also offer a small payment to take them from you.
Such recycling companies will then take the old ink cartridges and recycle all of the parts to be used in new compatible ink cartridges. Therefore consumers will not only make money by recycling their unwanted ink cartridges but can also save money when purchasing replacement cartridges as cheaper alternatives are then available. In many cases, particularly with professional quality printers, the price of a new set of ink cartridges is more than a new printer itself! Therefore, there needs to be a shift in the mind-set when it comes to ink cartridges before everyone looks to ‘auto-fill’ (CISS) systems. However, recycling ink cartridges, meaning they become available at a lower price to consumers, could be the fix that the industry needs to eventually lower the costs of printing.
