A Somerset offices supplies business has recycled its used ink cartridges to raise money for a good cause.

Samson Office Supplies, which is based in Ilminster, has recycled used and unwanted printer ink cartridges to raise £500 for St Margaret's Somerset Hospice, the Yeovil Express reports.

Dan Batten, who works at Samson, told the newspaper that the business and its customers are "delighted" to be providing funds for St Margaret's.

"Our toner and inkjet cartridge recycling scheme not only helps raise vital funds for the hospice, but also reduces the amount of cartridges sent to landfill," he commented.

The scheme has led to used ink cartridge collection boxed being placed in a number of Somerset offices, with St Margaret;s fundraiser Teresa Wort saying she is "extremely grateful" that the funds raised have been donated to the hospice.

Elsewhere, the Lowestoft Journal reported that Dell Primary School has been awarded a cheque for £164 thanks to its own ink cartridge recycling initiative.
