Why You Need to Recycle Waste Materials

More than providing business owners with a no-brainer solution to office junk disposal, Little Miss Recycle in Austin, Texas goes the extra mile to promote green office practices. As we make our services conveniently available to more companies, we work harder to inform our customers about the long-term benefits of recycling.

Let’s work together. Be aware of the following facts:

  • Ink and toner cartridges are made of plastic.
  • More than a billion ink and toner cartridges are sold in the U.S. every year.
  • Less than 20% of toner cartridges are recycled.
  • Ink from used cartridges can pollute the environment.
  • Every year, about 83% of all plastic waste ends up in landfills.
  • It takes a little over 2 oz. of oil to make a new inkjet cartridge.
  • Plastics can take over 1,000 years to decompose.

Recycle and Save

Not recycling makes hardworking people like you pay more taxes to keep landfill operations going. This can be burdensome for everyone. By recycling, companies can save on cost and energy. It takes significantly less money and energy to remanufacture cartridges than to produce new ones.

Keep Greenhouse Gas Levels Down

In 2007, an estimated 3 million tons of consumer electronics, including televisions, DVD players, and stereos were discarded. During the same year, approximately only 414,000 tons of electronics were collected for recycling in the U.S. This prevented the release of greenhouse gas equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 178,000 cars.
