Inkjet cartridge collection
Wesley United Methodist Church, 1200 Logan Avenue in Tyrone, is now collecting empty inkjet cartridges for recycling. Cartridges can be brought to the church during office hours (weekdays 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and deposited in the collection bin.
Simply place the old cartridge in a plastic sandwich bag and deposit it in the collection bin. Most businesses simply throw their empty cartridges in the garbage so check at work to see if they would donate their would-be garbage. No large laser cartridges are accepted with this program and will not fit through the holes on the collection box.
Recycling inkjet cartridges has a positive impact on the environment. Consider the following: nearly one million inkjets are thrown into landfills every day. Less than five percent of the cartridges produced are recycled. It takes 1,000 years for the plastic to decompose.
Questions about the program can be directed to the church office at 684-3341.

Inkjet cartridge collection
Wesley United Methodist Church, 1200 Logan Avenue in Tyrone, is now collecting empty inkjet cartridges for recycling. Cartridges can be brought to the church during office hours (weekdays 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and deposited in the collection bin.
Simply place the old cartridge in a plastic sandwich bag and deposit it in the collection bin. Most businesses simply throw their empty cartridges in the garbage so check at work to see if they would donate their would-be garbage. No large laser cartridges are accepted with this program and will not fit through the holes on the collection box.
Recycling inkjet cartridges has a positive impact on the environment. Consider the following: nearly one million inkjets are thrown into landfills every day. Less than five percent of the cartridges produced are recycled. It takes 1,000 years for the plastic to decompose.
Questions about the program can be directed to the church office at 684-3341.
