Chain partners with local store to recycle printer cartridges

A New York supermarket chain has joined forces with a shop based in the town of Glens Falls as part of a scheme to recycle printer cartridges.

The partnership is aimed at reducing the number of printer cartridges which go to landfills each year, the Bennington Banner reports.

Under the programme, printer iFill Inkjets will refill printer cartridges for half the price of a new one while people shop in the Price Chopper chain of supermarkets. The process takes place in the photo department of the 26 stores that are participating.

Mark Tremont, the owner of iFill Inkjets, said that many people who own office machines are not aware that they can or should recycle their printer cartridges.

"Virtually everybody has a printer. The problem is that only ten per cent of the people know about this recycling option," he remarked.

He added that there are already some other stores in the areas that offer to refill inkjet cartridges but his firm is trying to deliver top customer service to stay competitive.

A recent study by the American Consumer Institute suggested that many US residents think inkjet cartridges are too expensive.
