The Wellness Office is partnering with Printing Services and the Sierra Student Coalition on campus to provide a centralized printer ink/toner cartridge recycling program through TerraCycle.
This program is an international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes the material into affordable, innovative products. See more information.
As part of our campus mission toward sustainability, Printing Services (located on Franklin Street past TKE and toward BroMenn) has agreed to sign up for a printer cartridge collection brigade. This means that, if you or anyone you know drops off an accepted printer cartridge, Printing Services will collect, save and ship these to TerraCycle where they will be reused and repurposed. Additionally, IWU gets points for making donations, and these points can then be used toward charitable contributions.
So, check out this list of accepted donations and, if you or anyone you know are about to toss out a dried-up cartridge, bring it down to Printing Services, open all school year, and help out the environment!
