Kodak has announced its new Trade-In and Recycling Programme in the US, which allows customers to dispose of their electronic products, including printer ink devices, digital cameras and more.

The latest initiative from the company allows consumers to use the programme to trade-in their old technology for cash.

Pradeep Jotwani, president in the consumer digital imaging group and chief marketing officer at Eastman Kodak Company, said: "Sustainability is an essential business driver for Kodak and an important part of our product development process."

"Our Trade-In and Recycling programme is another example of Kodak’s ongoing commitment to sustainability in our operations, and to helping consumers be more sustainable in their own lives."

Recently, Duke University in the US launched a recycling programme for its faculty staff to dispose of their printer ink devices and toner cartridges.

Tonya Higgs, a staff assistant in the Procurement Services at the institution, noted that it's free and easy to do and can stop millions of products ever reaching landfill sites.
