Guy and Vincenza Ciampa at Cartridge Depot based in Bedford Town centre are DSC_0083celebrating the fact that since they opened their doors in 2012 they have recycled over 30,000 printer cartridges and prevented them from going to landfill! This has been achieved by the help of local Customers, Businesses, Schools, Charities and not-profit organisations dropping off or arranging collections of their empty or no longer required printer cartridges. Cartridge Depot has now been trading for over 7 years so it works out to be just over 4000 cartridges per year being recycled!
Business partner Guy Ciampa says “We believe being able to offer a free printer cartridge recycling service is so important. We sell these products to our customers so we really want to be able to continue our service after the cartridges reach the end of their life and stop them going into landfill. We know it can be difficult to find places to recycle empty printer cartridges which is why we try to make it as simple as possible for people who want to recycle with us. If you have any empty cartridges you would like to recycle just contact us to see how we can help.

Business partner Vincenza Ciampa says “Studies show that over 350 million cartridges are dumped and put into landfill each year. The fact that it can take anything between 450 to 1000 years for cartridges to decompose is staggering. We are always looking to increase the figure of cartridges we send for recycling as we know our environment will benefit from this, so we ask all Local People, Businesses and Organisations to join us in recycling empty printer cartridges. You do not even need to be a customer or buy anything from us, it is free, and actually in some cases you may be able to earn yourself a bit of extra money”
Now, more than ever is the time to be aware of our actions when it comes to our waste disposal. The whole world is already beginning to see the effects of climate change and recycling empty printer cartridges will in part help future generations. So next time you have an empty cartridge please think and rather than throwing it in the bin, help Cartridge Depot continue their good work by popping in and recycling yours. If you have a large quantity of cartridges and need them collected contact Cartridge Depot to find out how they can help.
