Hurry! Trade your printer cartridges for paper

Came across this info, re: printer cartridges, through a recycling newsletter I get, Recycling Rag.
Unfortunately, the deal at Office Depot ends this summer. Hopefully something else will come along...

Recycling Printer Cartridges,
Part 2

In response to an article about Recycling Printer Cartridges in our last issue, newsletter subscribers Fern G. Weis and Jeff Zanders both wrote to let us know that some companies offer money for empty cartridges needed for remanufacturing. It is estimated that close to one million ink jet cartridges are thrown away each day. We investigated further and learned that, indeed, we can all get more than brownie points for recycling something we might not otherwise use.

Until September, 2003, Office Depot
will exchange a ream of EnviroCopy
recycled copy paper for any empty cartridge.

Planet Green has developed a fundraising-recycling program for organizations. They accept lots no smaller than 20 and no larger than 200 and provide prepaid mailing labels. Note: They don't accept all cartridges, but provide a long list that they do want.

C-REP (Printer Cartridge Recycling for Environmental Protection) is another fundraising program designed to help organizations raise funds through recycling empty printer cartridges and pay cash for qualified empty cartridges collected.

RE: Hurry! Trade your printer cartridges for paper

Sounds good. I have one in a plain box and it looks like it might have been double pack . The last time I changed my ribbon was Aug last year. I wonder how you can tell if it's used or not. I can't get it out of the cardboard thing with out damaging the packing. I guess it's new. Who knows. But it may be a good idea to hang onto any in the future in case this offer comes up again. Thanks
