By reusing and recycling your cartridges, you can help conserve resources, reduce pollution, support jobs in the reuse and recycling industry, and in some cases earn money for schools, charities, or your own business.

Industry sources say more than 300 million cartridges end up in landfills each year.  That's more than 8 cartridges thrown away in the U.S. every second! 

The City of St. Louis offers this list of retailers, which is not inclusive, to help residents reuse and recycle.  The City does not endorse any of these businesses or services.  Space does not allow us to include all organizations that may be applicable to this list.  The variety and availability of these services may change at any time.

Organizations located within the City of St. Louis are demarcated by the Arch decal.  Organization located within Missouri are demarcated by the state decal.
