How are ink cartridges recycled

Dispose of ink cartridges - this is how it works!

The news is rolling over and over again every day due to environmental pollution. We ourselves recognize this fact from the thunderstorms that are increasingly breaking in over Germany. The winters are getting colder, the summers are hotter and the mountain of rubbish is partly to blame. Everyone resolves to do their part to protect the environment, even if it's just plastic garbage disposal. But how do you properly dispose of old ink cartridges with print heads? They are made of plastic. There is still some ink residue inside. The contacts on the cartridges are made of metal, and apart from the ink, they have no place in plastic waste. So what do you do with the cartridge?

Everyone can do their part to protect the environment. However, environmental protection works best when it involves little extra effort. The easier it is to dispose of the garbage, the easier it will be for the population to sort the garbage. Raw material resources show why waste separation is so important. There is less and less of everything. Natural gas, crude oil, precious metals, etc. are almost completely mined. Experts assume that there will be no more oil available by 2050. What then should ink cartridges be made of? After all, petroleum is a major ingredient that plastic is made from. If plastic waste is disposed of appropriately, it can be recycled and reused. This means that resources do not have to be fully exhausted and are available for longer. The waste separation system is already working very well in Germany. The paper bin, the yellow sack, residual waste and recycling centers are available to the population. However, there are already difficulties when disposing of old ink cartridges with a print head. Old batteries can be thrown into a container in supermarkets, for example. These are collected and can then be disposed of accordingly. But how is the disposal of empty cartridges regulated? There are no containers available in supermarkets for old ink cartridges. Mostly, old cartridges end up in the residual waste out of ignorance. It is clear that the yellow sack is by no means suitable for empty ink cartridges. For this reason, leergedruck.de was launched.
