Cartridge Evolution, an inkjet cartridge recycler welcomes The Village of Ridgewood, New Jersey to the Monster Ink Recycling programme.
Ridgewood is the 3rd municipality in New Jersey partnering with Cartridge Evolution. Recovering inkjet cartridges to be remanufactured is part of a growing circular economy trend. Inkjet printers are most common in homes and small businesses.
The ribbon cutting event at this newest location was attended by Mayor Susan Knudsen, Library Director, Nancy Greene, Council Members Lorraine Reynolds and Pamela Perron, Recycling Director Sean Hamlin, Village Manager Heather Mailander and Manager of Library Information Services, Charles Gallo, with Anne Marie Principe, Legislative Affairs, for Cartridge Evolution.
The Monster Ink Recycling programme fosters recycling habits to help keep the planet green. Inkjet cartridges, a subset of electronic waste is diverted from landfills where they have the potential to contaminate natural resources as they decompose. As an added incentive, all empty ink jet cartridges recovered earn funds that go back to the village.
“This is the latest step in furthering Ridgewood’s waste reduction efforts by increased recycling of non-traditional items”, stated Johanna Luttrell, Certified Recycling Professional. Sean Hamlin, Supervisor of Sanitation and Recycling Coordinator shares “Through this recycling programme, we are able to recycle used printer cartridges conserving energy and natural resources by reducing the need for raw materials to manufacture new ones.” Bins will be installed in convenient locations throughout the Village of Ridgewood.
The Village of Ridgewood was created on 20 November 1894 in Bergen County. Ridgewood is home to over 24,000 people and supports a variety of small businesses.
Cartridge Evolution is headquartered in a responsible recycling (R2) certified facility in Brooklyn, NY.
