Empty cartridge recycling is one of the most effective ways to reduce carbon footprints. However, setting up a cartridge recycling program may not exactly be on your day to day schedule. We understand, recycling isn’t necessarily your core competency. Your first priority is moving product out the door.
Through Mac Copy’s dedicated recycling program, we can collect empty cartridges without causing inefficiency in your day to day operations. Sound like something interesting? We take care of everything on the backend so that you can focus on your business operations.
Reducing Waste – the Numbers
We all know that recycling materials keeps them from moving into landfills, where they will waste energy and space, possibly polluting the air as well as the land. For instance, any plastic that ends up in a landfill takes around 1000 years to fully degrade.
In America, the average person produces around 7.5 pounds of waste per day. Most of this waste is produced on the job, believe it or not. This is garbage that makes its way into landfills. Every pound that you can take off of this metric adds up to an extraordinary amount of value for the environment, considering the amount of waste that is produced on a daily basis.
Diverting Plastics from Landfills
A landfill is currently one of the worst ways that we have to store garbage. The materials emit unpleasant smells and leak toxic chemicals into the air, which ruins not only the land within the landfill, but much of the land around it as well. Depending on the disposal methods of a particular landfill, garbage may eventually be incinerated. This is also awful for the environment, as it releases toxic chemicals into the air and the ozone.
The more that we recycle, the less that we have to resort to these primitive methods of storing our garbage. Not only do you preserve the land that would otherwise be used for the landfill, but you also upgrade the quality of surrounding neighborhoods, parks and business districts (maybe your own).
