Five of the largest printing powerhouses in the world, Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson and Lexmark, have joined forces to create Singapore's first-ever toner and ink cartridges recycling initiative, Project Homecoming.

The initiative is aimed at encouraging both community awareness and also environmental responsibility among the Singapore people. This will be carried out by introducing convenient cartridge recycling as well as increased education.

With support from the National Environment Agency and the National Library Board, the initiative could have a big effect on the levels of energy savings made by printers in the country.

Andrew Koh, lead spokesperson for Project Homecoming, said: "We aim to bring greater convenience to the public who are keen on making a personal contribution to recycling efforts across the island, and are proud to be working together as a team to jointly fund and promote the culture of recycling in Singapore."

It is hoped that should the venture prove a success, then similar ink cartridges initiatives could be carried out around the world.
