Over the last 12 months Australians made history by returning over 3.5 million cartridges through the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program. That means Australians were turning in 13,500 cartridges every working day, or 386 bathtubs full of cartridges!
Rebecca Gilling tells Dave Residents and businesses in Tasmania alone returned almost 70,000 printer cartridges through participating stores and councils! If you would like specific stats for your local council, please contact me.
Across Australia used printer cartridges have been recycled into over 900km of road surfaces and sealants – which is equivalent to going from Hobart to Launceston 4.5 times (200km)!
