Get paid to recycle – NamiGreen E-waste offers cash for old printer cartridges
Windhoek-based recycler, NamiGreen E-waste in a move to prevent printer cartridges ending up in the landfills which in turn damages the environment, the e waste company has started recycling cartridges for companies and individuals.
Over the last 4 weeks, NamiGreen recycled the first 3000 printer cartridges at their Windhoek E-waste facility.
CEO of NamiGreen, Per Hansen said that too often companies and individuals throw out printer cartridges which end up on landfills.
“It’s bad for several reasons, mostly because many printer cartridges can be recycled and reused and at NamiGreen we typically pay between N$1 to N$15 per cartridge – for specific types of cartridges and given they are not broken/cracked,” he said.
According to Hansen even if the cartridges are broken, they should still not be send to the waste bin as they will end up polluting the environment in the long term.
NamiGreen is expanding operations and has called on all local companies and individuals to recycle their cartridges and toners instead of the throwing them in the waste bin.
Hansen said that businesses or individuals can simply deliver their printer cartridges to NamiGreen in Southern Industrial District, 5 Von Braun Street, Windhoek, while for larger volumes especially for big companies, the e waste company offers a free collection service.
