Col­lec­tion point

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

DID you know you can dis­pose of your used printer car­tridges in the Planet Ark col­lec­tion bins lo­cated at all the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil cus­tomer ser­vice cen­tres and li­braries? Aus­tralians send 34 printer car­tridges to land­fill ev­ery minute and Coun­cil is de­ter­mined to change this trend. Printer car­tridges are made up of a com­plex mix of plas­tics, metal, inks and ton­ers and thus rep­re­sent a sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment in re­sources which are lost to land­fill. This pro­gram col­lects and re­turns car­tridges for re man­u­fac­tur­ing and re­cy­cling.
