Town collects over 6,000 cartridges

ManjimupSmall community in Shire of Manjimup, Australia supports recycling programme, collecting 6,067 used cartridges.

thewest.com.au reports on the cartridge recycling efforts of a small community in western Australia whose residents have been taking part in recycler Planet Ark’s electronic waste recycling programme, Cartridges 4 Planet Ark, with over 6,000 cartridges collected from the Shire of Manjimup so far.

The recycling programme began in 2003 and has since seen the collection of 21 million cartridges and 9,800 tonnes of plastics, metals and inks for recycling with the help of Australia Post, whose branches hold recycling bins for the public to drop-off empty cartridges.

Janet Sparrow, Recycling Programs Manager at Planet Ark, said: “People were already starting to get into the habit of taking things to the post office for recycling […] The post office is the collection point and the cartridges go to our recycling partner in Melbourne, and all of the bags are labelled to make sure we know how many each location has recycled.”

Sparrow added that Planet Ark is impressed with Manjimup’s “great effort”, commenting: “For a smaller community, 6,067 cartridges shows obviously there’s a lot of support locally for the drop-offs that are available.”
