Cartridge World Celebrates America Recycles Day
World's Largest Ink Refiller Helps Americans Reduce Landfill Waste
EMERYVILLE, Calif., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Cartridge World, the largest retailer of cartridge refilling services in the world, reinforces its commitment to environmental awareness by celebrating America Recycles Day 2004 on November 15, a national day dedicated to better inform consumers about the advantages of recycling at home and buying recycled products. Cartridge World North America provides consumers and businesses with an alternative option to buying new, brand-name ink-jet and toner cartridges in efforts to protect the environment. This proactive solution to waste reduction is a win-win situation for consumers, entrepreneurs and the environment. "Today, more than 350 million ink cartridges are discarded in landfills each year," said Burt Yarkin, president of Cartridge World North America. "With Cartridge World's continued commitment to refilling printer cartridges, it's only a matter of time until refilling cartridges is as common as separating waste material in our homes for the recycle bins." Different from the efforts of big name brand manufacturers, Cartridge World addresses environmental issues by showcasing its ability to refill inkjet cartridges an average of three to eight times and remanufacture laser cartridges infinitely, without sacrificing quality. Cartridge World has also established a recycling fundraiser program with public and private schools across the nation. The recycling program invites both students and teachers from local schools to drop off their empty ink cartridges, and Cartridge World will offer to buy back those cartridges to ensure each one is recycled properly. In addition to recycling efforts, Cartridge World offers consumers and businesses up to 50 percent savings on ink and toner cartridges with a 100 percent money-back guarantee. America Recycles Day is a national all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The goal of the annual campaign is to encourage Americans to recycle and buy recycled products.

In addition to providing refill services, Cartridge World's more than 700 locations worldwide deal in compatible and original manufacturer cartridges for inkjet printers, laser printers, fax machines and photocopiers as well as additional supplies for fax machines and copiers. Cartridge World was recently named the No. 1 Toner Replacement Service franchise for 2004 according to Entrepreneur Magazine. For more information, visit http://www.cartridgeworldusa.com .
