The Environmental Impact of Printer Cartridges
- It takes one gallon of oil to make a new laser cartridge
- Nearly eight cartridges are thrown away per second in the United States alone
- About 70 percent of used printer cartridges are currently being thrown out
- Over 75 percent of waste is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30 percent of it
- A laser cartridge thrown into a landfill can take up to 450 years to decompose…some components take over 1,000 years
- In one year, if the world’s discarded cartridges were stacked end-to-end, they would circle the earth over three times.
