::: Canon Ink Cartridges - what to do ?? :::



What does one do with their empty Canon Ink Cartridges?



Make Cartridge-Ade?

These cute little cartridges just don't want to go into the trash.. they want to be recycled..so I went to the CANON website ... http://estore.usa.canon.com/recycle/recycle.asp and there was recycling information... but none for these little guys..
Canon has a program to recycle the following:
  • Binoculars
  • Camcorders
  • Cameras (digital/film)
  • Fax Machines
  • ImageCLASS Products
  • PC Copiers
  • Printers
  • Projectors/Video Equipment
  • Scanners
ALL GOOD & NICE...BUT what I really think is needed is a program for cartridges... so many more cartridges.. so much more recycling...
SO, I emailed CANON but have not heard back yet (just being positive.. its been awhile)

AND Office Depot no longer excepts CANON cartriges for recycling.. (not sure why)

again the word .. SO, I have sent many a cartridge off in these little MAIL IT BACK IT'S FREE packets.. (that I pick up at the local POST OFFICE)


BUT, once again I think CANON should provide something- maybe with purchase for the proper disposal/recycle of these used ink cartridges..

Please let me know if any of you have a fast easy way for responsible disposal / recycling of these CANON ink cartridges.

and for today.. I will make CARTRIDGE-ADE!
