Canon Goes Greener with New Ink Cartridge Recycling Program

Canon Green

Canon has announced a new ink cartridge recycling program that lets PIXMA printer users drop off their Canon ink cartridges at FedEx locations.

Canon PIXMA printer users can now drop off empty genuine PIXMA inkjet cartridges at more than 1,600 FedEx Office Print and Ship Centers across the United States. From FedEx Office locations, cartridges will be consolidated by Sims Recycling Solutions, who specialize in the large-scale processing of electronic waste. After being consolidated by SIMS Recycling, the Genuine Canon ink cartridges go to Close the Loop, a “material recovery” company specializing in the recycling of inkjet cartridges. This program will be free of cost to all Canon consumers. –Canon USA

    This is great news. I very much like the idea of being able to recycle my cartridges.

    Even better, my nearest FedEx staffed location is a stones throw from my fav donut place…
