The QUB Greens have been collecting used print cartridges this term to be recycled in support of Caroline Lucas MEP and her campaign to become the first Green MP at Westminster.
We have collected 100 print cartridges and a number of mobile phones which will be sent to Recycle4charity!
Over four million used cartridges are thrown away each year and end up in landfill sites!
Not only is this a huge waste of resources, but the empty inkjets are worth £1 to charities and not for profit organizations when recycled. We have also seen an increasing need for mobile phone recycling which is also another item worth £££'s!
