Empty cartridges help to grow vegetables

Empty cartridges help to grow vegetables

June 2, 2021

In South Africa, Kyocera’s cartridge recycling project is helping a community vegetable garden.

Kyocera is working with Carbon Footprint Recycling for its cartridge recycling project in South Africa. The company picks up the boxes full of empty cartridges and toner bottles and turns the empty cartridges into items that are useful for participating organisations or community projects.

iWeb reported on a community garden project in South Africa which has received concrete-based planter boxes which have been made from the collected waste cartridges. Ithembelihle is the first school who received items from Kyocera’s cartridge recycling project. The Principle Leonor Ngozi told iWeb: “The planter boxes we received through M&R and Kyocera will be used to grow seedlings that will later be transplanted to raised tyre gardens for further growth.”

Murray & Roberts was one of the first companies to sign up to the project and has managed to recycle 148kg in cartridges which were turned into 16 planters that were donated so far.

iWeb reported “Carbon Footprint Recycling has collected 3647 Kyocera cartridges, amounting to 13 585kg of recycled material that has been turned into planters, benches and pavers.”
