Staples, the world's largest office supply company and second largest internet retailer, Staples, Inc. announced that it has recycled 350 million ink and toner cartridges since 2005, averaging over 60 million cartridges per year for the past three years.

Through the cartridge recycling program, Staples has recycled 182 million pounds of plastics and metals, roughly the equivalent weight of an aircraft carrier or 400 times the Statue of Liberty.

With Staples' ink and toner cartridge recycling program, customers receive $2 back in Staples Rewards(R) per recycled cartridge, with a limit of 10 per month. Used cartridges can be dropped off at any Staples retail location and Ink Recycling Rewards can be used to buy almost anything from Staples, in-store or online. Staples was the first national retailer to reward customers for recycling ink and toner cartridges. In addition to recycling rewards, Staples Rewards members receive free shipping from Staples.com and five percent back on all purchases.

"Staples is America's number one choice for ink and toner, in part because of our great cartridge recycling program," said Mark Buckley, Vice President, Environmental Affairs, Staples. "As the largest retail recycler of ink and toner in North America, Staples is thrilled to be the first to reach this milestone, as we help customers reduce their environmental footprint and save money at the same time. Staples makes it easy to find replacement ink and toner, with fast, free delivery on Staples.com and knowledgeable associates to assist with in-store purchases."

Staples offers thousands of ink cartridges and toner supplies from the most trusted brands, including HP, Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, Lexmark, Xerox, Samsung, Okidata, Pitney Bowes and more. Staples also carries a wide selection of printer cartridges, including laser printer toners, fax toners, copier toners, inkjet cartridges and all-in-one cartridges.

Staples makes it easy for customers to find the right ink and toner, with an ink and toner finder available however and wherever they like to shop, whether using the in-store ink and toner finder kiosk, on Staples.com or through Staples mobile app or mobile website. Most of the leading brands of ink and toner cartridges can also be reserved on line and picked up at a local Staples store.

Staples consistently features great deals on ink and toner, including currently:

-- Buy two HP ink cartridges, either in-store or on Staples.com and get 50 percent off a third HP cartridge (ends Saturday, August 24)

-- A $20 Visa prepaid card with the purchase of two of the same HP toner (on Staples.com only, ends Saturday, August 24)

-- Buy two HP Color Laser Toners and get the third HP Color Laser Toner at 50 percent off (Sunday, August 25 through Saturday, August 31)

The ink and toner cartridge recycling milestone is just one of several environmental accomplishments for Staples, which announced last month it reached 500 facilities certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR(R) program.
