Londoners are lagging behind in their recycling of office supplies such as ink and toner cartridges, according to a leading printer manufacturer.

In fact, people living in the capital do not recycle as much as others around the UK, with one in ten respondents admitting to not doing it at all, a study by Lexmark has found.

However, the report revealed that more than a quarter of the overall population of Britain are now recycling regularly.

Products such as reusable ink cartridges have seen a boom recently, as more and more people look to produce less waste and save money.

Steve Purdy, country general manager of Lexmark UK, said: "It's clear from this research that consumers are now making recycling part of their everyday lives.

"People are willing to fulfil their environmental commitments and help reduce the amount of waste and landfill they produce. Their contribution may be minimal, but it only takes a few small steps by many to make a significant difference."
