Quill.com says that it has recycled more than one million ink and toner cartridges in 2012 through its national Ink and Toner Recycle Program, launched in 2011.
The Quill.com Ink and Toner recycle program one of the first programs of its kind, allows customers to recycle their cartridges essentially from their desks. Customers download a free pre-paid mailing label and mail the used cartridges to Quill.com. Two weeks after receiving the cartridges, Quill.com deposits $2 per cartridge, up to $20 per month, into the customer's Quill.com account to use on their next purchase. The returned cartridges are either reused as remanufactured cartridges or their parts are broken down and used in the production of other office supplies.
"Through the Quill.com Ink and Toner Recycle Program, customers can help reduce environmental impacts from used cartridges and find great value in their ongoing purchases of ink and toner," said Quill.com Vice President of Merchandising, Sergio Pereira.
