Staples’ Ink and Toner Cartridge Recycling Program

Beginning February 1st, Staples will begin to offer a comprehensive ink and toner recycling program. This program is part of their EcoEasy suite of green initiatives. Staples will accept any brand or type of cartridge.  In exchange for each recycled cartridge, customers will receive $3 in Staples Rewards.  Staples will accept up to 10 cartridges per customer per month. The rewards can be used toward any purchase “in store, online or over the phone.” Through this program, they hope to recycle more than 30 million cartridges in 2009 which would make them “the world’s largest ink and toner recycler.”

Last year through their EcoEasy suite of green initiatives Staples:

  • Recycled more than 22 million ink and toner cartridges
  • Recycled 4 million pounds of electronic waste
  • Opened its first two stores registered with the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.

According to Scott Rankin, VP/DMM of technology merchandising:

“When it comes to ink and toner sales and recycling, Staples is the easy choice. Not only do we provide great value, but we can also reward customers for their support for the environment,” … always a strong supporter of environmental conservation through sustainable business practices, Staples continues to make it even easier for our customers to make a difference - what we call EcoEasy.”

  1. Please notice that Staples has been promoting this to look like it’s now an all-encompassing program and is very subtly inserting the detail that you can now ONLY EARN MONEY ON TEN INKJETS A MONTH. Whereas before a school could earn around $270 (3 per day) per month, now Staples is limiting them to $30.

    Everyone has taken the Staples press release hook, line and sinker without noticing that Staples is actually not expanding the program at all. It is drastically cutting the monthly value that people can earn at Staples.
