Printer/Fax Cartridge Recycling Program Raises Over $2,800 for Scholarships


The program to recycle printer and fax cartridges at Penn College has raised more than $2,800 for the general scholarship fund.

The Penn College Foundation recently received the check for $429 from the Cartridge World store at 1818 E. Third St., in Williamsport, for empty inkjet, laser and fax-machine cartridges turned in by Penn College employees and students.

Since it began last March, the cartridge recycling program has resulted in a total of $2,824 for the general scholarship fund. 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.

Students and employees can drop their empty printer and fax-machine cartridges in the cartridge-recycling bins located near the Student Activities desk in the Bush Campus Center, at the General Services building and in on-campus student housing complexes. The cartridges can also be sent through interoffice mail to Joe Geffre, director of mail and document services, DIF #167.

“Joe Geffre deserves all the credit for starting this initiative,” said Joann Kay, executive director of the Penn College Foundation. “This is a great program that helps students while saving landfill space.”
