Rethinking inkjet cartridges

A pioneering project in south London will collect computer printer inkjet cartridges for recycling.

In a scheme between the London Borough of Lambeth and Environmental Business Products, 130,000 households will receive a freepost collection bag so that they can recycle their used cartridges free of charge.

As an additional benefit, those who return their bags will be entered into a competition to win a digital camera and print dock.

The partnership believes that this is the first service of this kind in the country.

Lambeth already has six collection banks for cartridges around the borough, but the council believes that this will provide more recycling options for its residents.

Lambeth sustainable waste manager Luke Henry said: It is a service provision, rather than something that will give a lot more tonnages. We hope it will expand.
