Fact: It can take between 500 and 1,000 years for a printer cartridge to break down in a landfill site!
Knowing this, the vast majority of DB Schenker employees throughout North America are recycling their ink and toner cartridges at Staples stores, and we are very thankful for that, but we’re always looking for ways to increase our environmental responsibility and become an even more green company.
Nada Hana, from DB Schenker’s Chicago branch has come across a company with an even better, more convenient process. Recycle Your Empties (RYE) will send you free shipping labels and boxes, recycle your ink and toner cartridges, and send the monetary value of your cartridges to a charity of your choice.
You can even request free cartridge collection displays to place around your facility by contacting RYE directly.
DB Schenker’s charity of choice for this program is The American Cancer Society, Relay For Life.
