Ink cartridge recycling has a huge impact on what goes into landfills. Cross-contamination becomes a big problem when ink leaks from cartridges in the recycle bin onto other items.



In a recent article from News Radio 1690am-KYW in Philadelphia, they shared information about the city recovering from the lack of plastic recycling during the pandemic. In a combination of worker shortage a reduced resources, the nation itself also found an overabundant supply of recyclable plastics as China closed its former open-door policy for receiving recyclable plastic from the united States, and other ports. In essence, recyclable plastic simply started to pile up.

On the surface, it might look like a regional problem, but this is nation-wide. Ink cartridges alone add a staggering volume of waste to landfills across the United States with more than 375 million ink cartridges going straight into the ground each year. There are a number of reasons why this happens - but the general public can make an immediate difference.

Ink cartridge recycling has a huge impact on what goes into landfills. Cross-contamination becomes a big problem when ink leaks from cartridges in the recycle bin onto other items. Those items are rendered as trash and aren’t suitable for the recycling process because of the ink contamination. Those other plastics, bottles and paper materials get buried in landfills too because of cross contamination. This is why ink cartridges do not go into the recycling bin.
