Staples Inc., has recycled 350 million ink and toner cartridges since 2005, averaging more than 60 million cartridges per year for the past three years.

Staples store imageThrough the program, the company has recycled 182 million pounds of plastics and metals, roughly the equivalent weight of an aircraft carrier or 400 times the weight of the Statue of Liberty, the company reported.

Through the program, Staples customers receive $2 back in Staples Rewards per recycled cartridge, with a limit of 10 per month. Used cartridges can be dropped off at any Staples retail location and Ink Recycling Rewards can be used to buy almost anything from Staples, in-store or online. Staples was the first national retailer to reward customers for recycling ink and toner cartridges

“Staples is America’s number one choice for ink and toner, in part because of our great cartridge recycling program,” said Mark Buckley, vice president, environmental affairs for Staples. “As the largest retail recycler of ink and toner in North America, Staples is thrilled to be the first to reach this milestone, as we help customers reduce their environmental footprint and save money at the same time. “

The ink and toner cartridge recycling milestone is just one of several recent environmental accomplishments for Staples, which announced last month it reached 500 facilities certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star program.

The program once again demonstrates how Staples' industry leadership in making Green Retail Decisions is both good for the environment and good for its business. – John Failla for Green Retail Decisions
