Cartridge-Recycling Program Already Paying Dividends for Students


A program to recycle printer cartridges is already helping to boost Pennsylvania College of Technology’s general scholarship fund.

The Penn College Foundation recently received a check for $131 for the general scholarship fund from the Cartridge World store, 1818 E. Third St. in Williamsport, for empty inkjet and laser cartridges turned in by college employees. The recycling program started in March.

The recycling program will accept empty printer cartridges from college-owned and home computers.

Employees can send the empty cartridges through interoffice mail to Joe Geffre, director of mail and document services, DIF #167, or drop them in the cartridge-recycling bin located near the Student Activities desk in the Bush Campus Center.

Recycling bins have been placed in on-campus housing complexes for students to donate their empty printer cartridges.

The program will accept empty inkjet and laser cartridges made by HP, Lexmark, Canon, Dell, Epson and Brother.
