Canon has launched a recycling campaign to recycle toner cartridges, it has been stated.

Recycling bins for used ink cartridges will be set up across various sites in Metro Manila, in the Philippines, according to inquirer.net. The scheme forms part of Canon GreenNation, an environmental awareness programme that raises knowledge of disposal of ink and toner cartridges.

GreenNation sees recycling bins placed in convenient locations for users to deposit their cartridges for recycling, the news provider said. Canon hopes the campaign will spur printer users to think carefully about ink cartridge disposal and in doing so help them to support environmental issues, the news source said.

It is estimated that correct disposal of ink cartridges will reduce landfill by around 86 per cent. This is because individual parts – metals, plastics, etc – can be separated.
