Printer-Cartridge Recycling Keeps Returning Benefits for Students


Four months of recycling printer and fax-machine cartridges at Penn College has produced nearly $750 for scholarships.The Penn College Foundation recently received a check for $251 from the Cartridge World store at 1818 E. Third St. in Williamsport, for empty inkjet and laser cartridges and fax-machine cartridges turned in by Penn College employees. The recycling program has resulted in a total of $749 for the general scholarship fund since it began in March.The recycling program accepts empty inkjet and laser cartridges and fax-machine cartridges made by HP, Lexmark, Canon, Dell, Epson and Brother. The cartridges can come from college-owned or home-owned printers and fax machines.

Employees can send the empty printer and fax-machine 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 also have been placed in on-campus housing complexes for students to donate their empty cartridges.
