Inkjet-Printer Cartridges Still Accepted in Recycling Program


Penn College’s printer-cartridge recycling program continues to accept inkjet-printer cartridges from college-owned and home computers. Since it started in March 2006, the program has added more than $3,600 to the general scholarship fund. Joseph G. Geffre, director of mail and document/shipping and receiving services, coordinates the program. He reports that, due to a lack of demand, the recycling program no longer can accept laser-printer and fax-machine cartridges. Geffre said they can still accept inkjet-printer cartridges at the drop-off boxes around campus, at the Mail and Document Services Office (ATHS, Room E136) or through interoffice mail to DIF #167. The empty cartridges are sold to the Cartridge World store at 1818 E. Third St. in Williamsport, with all proceeds going to the general scholarship fund.
