Recycling

Don't toss it, recycle it!

Distribution Services is now able to recycle all of PCOM's used ink jet printer, laser printer and fax toner cartridges. Recycling these cartridges not only keeps them out of landfills, but saves important natural resources.

Did you know:

  • It takes more than three quarts of oil to produce one laser cartridge?
  • The plastic used in each printer cartridge takes more than 1000 years to decompose?
  • 25 million printer cartridges go to land fills each month?

Please recycle your PCOM cartridges by sending them by inter-office mail or bringing them to Distribution Services, Suite LL-034 in Evans Hall.
