Ink & Toner Recycling Cartridge Container Locations

During the last years the University has made significant investments in establishing a successful recycling program and recognizes that recycled content products such as printer cartridges also are essential to the continuing viability of the recycling program, and for the foundation of an environmentally sound production system. 

In an effort to conserve resources, Emory Procurement has partnered with Flex Imaging to make ink and toner cartridge recycling easy for you. A large number of GoGreen cartridge containers has been placed in several locations on the Emory and Oxford campuses. 

You can support the Recycling Ink & Toner Cartridge Program by placing your used/empty ink/toner cartridges (all supplier brands) in the cartridge container location nearest to your office. Ink & Toner Cartridge Container Locations
