Printer cartridges now accepted at recycling centres
All printer cartridges delivered to the centres are assessed to see if they can be reused. These cartridges are then refilled and debranded before being sold as remanufactured cartridges.
Cartridges that cannot be reused due to damage are being stored for processing to recover the plastic, copper and other materials used to produce them.
The service is being provided by the county council working with contractor May Gurney, which manages the sites on behalf of the council.
