Staples announced that it has recycled 350 million ink and toner cartridges since 2005, averaging over 60 million cartridges per year in the past three years. Through the cartridge recycling program, Staples has recycled 182 million pounds of plastics and metals, roughly the equivalent weight of an aircraft carrier or 400 times the Statue of Liberty.
WOW! That is a ton of ink! Staples, in my opinion, has one of the best recycling programs around. With Staples’ ink and toner cartridge recycling program, customers receive $2 back in Staples Rewards® per recycled cartridge, with a limit of 10 per month.
Used cartridges can be dropped off at any Staples retail location and Ink Recycling Rewards can be used to buy almost anything from Staples, in-store or online. Staples was the first national retailer to reward customers for recycling ink and toner cartridges. In addition to recycling rewards, Staples Rewards members receive free shipping from Staples.com and five percent back on all purchases.
Enjoy the savings & the rewards!
