Konica Minolta has proudly partnered with Cartridges 4 Planet Ark for the past 15 years and we’ve just recycled our two millionth cartridge. That's right; out of more than 38 million cartridges recycled by the Planet Ark program, Konica Minolta has contributed two million.
Cartridges 4 Planet Ark gives Australians a free, easy, and environmentally-accredited way to recycle used printer cartridges.
It’s important to have a safe and reliable way to recycle these materials because they can’t just be thrown in any old recycling bin. They contain plastics, metal, inks, and toners that can actually be recycled into new print cartridges. Throwing them into landfill wastes these resources.
The program aims to recycle 41 million cartridges by March 2019 and it’s well on its way. With your help, we can hit or even exceed that target. Just bring your used printer cartridges to a Konica Minolta office and deposit it in the Cartridges 4 Planet Ark box.
If your organisation uses more than three cartridges per week, you could apply for your own Cartridges 4 Planet Ark box. Applying online is easy: Follow the link below.
Konica Minolta’s participation in this initiative reflects our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, going back more than 30 years. We combine environmental sustainability into our operations and we do what we can to help partners and clients do the same.
For example, our printers and multifunction devices are among the most environmentally efficient available because they're energy efficient, use less toner, and produce less emissions.
We'll continue our work to reduce our environmental impact in all areas, and Cartridges 4 Planet Ark is an important part of our efforts. We look forward to hitting more milestones in the years ahead.
