I’ve recycled my ink cartridge, have you?

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

During our weekly visit to the library, we deposited an empty ink cartridge into the recycling box positioned just inside the entrance of the Tampines Regional Library.

Don't just throw your empty ink or toner cartridge down the bin - recycle it!

Don't just throw your empty ink or toner cartridge down the bin - recycle it!

I’d just used up the black ink cartridge on my ink jet printer at home.

In the past, there wouldn’t have been any other choice but to dump it with other domestic refuse down the chute.

Recycle bin at the library.

But with Project Homecoming, I can do my own little part to conserve the environment by sending the expended cartridge for recycling.

Project Homecoming is an ink and toner cartridge recycling initiative that is led, managed and jointly funded by the five leading printer brands – Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson and Lexmark.

The initiative is supported by National Environment Agency and National Library Board of Singapore.

Recycling bins made from cardboards have been placed at 13 NLB libraries where the public can deposit used ink and toner cartridges.

At first, I didn’t spot the recycling bin at Tampines Regional Library so I asked the librarian at the counter, wondering if she’d know what I was asking about.

She knew exactly what was going on for Project Homecoming and promptly pointed out the inconspicuous recycling bin squatting just inside the entrance.

I got junior to drop the empty cartridge in, after explaining to him how he would be doing his little part in helping conserve the Earth.

I’m also mighty glad that National Library Board has done a stellar job getting its staff to be aware of the initiative.

Bravo!

The aim to make it easier for the public to recycle their used ink and toner cartridges.

This is the first time globally outside Japan that these five brands have come together to initiate a joint recycling project.

Andrew Koh, Senior Director & General Manager, Consumer Imaging & Information Products Division, Canon Singapore Pte Ltd“We aim to bring greater convenience to the public who are keen on making a personal contribution to recycling efforts across the island, and are proud to be working together as a team to jointly fund and promote the culture of recycling in Singapore,” said Andrew Koh, lead spokesperson for Project Homecoming and Senior Director and General Manager, Consumer Imaging & Information Products Division, Canon Singapore.

“With strong support from the NEA and NLB, we will be able to give back to society through this initiative as socially responsible organisations, while driving home the message of environmental awareness through cartridge recycling as part of joint sustainability efforts from the printing industry.”

Project Homecoming will provide easily accessible cartridge recycling bins at 13 NLB libraries where the public can deposit used ink and toner cartridges from printers of any brand for recycling – even those of other brands not in the Project Homecoming partnership.

The cartridges are then periodically collected for proper recycling.

Recycling vendors of the joint initiative will collect the cartridges from the boxes and break down recyclable parts including plastics and metal, which can then be made into other products such as pens or petroleum coke (high-grade fuel).

These recycling processes will help minimise waste, landfill and pollution while maximising the recovery of valuable resources.
