Planet Ark - Thanks Tasmania!

Over the last 12 months Australians made history by returning over 3.5 million cartridges through the Cartridges 4 Planet Ark program.

That means Australians were turning in 13,500 cartridges every working day or 386 bathtubs full of cartridges!

Tasmanians returned around 70,000 printer cartridges to participating stores and councils and around 5000 came from the coast directly.

People on the way to work or catching up on the news may be surprised to hear their commute might have been thanks to recycled cartridges.

They’ve been turned into over 900km of road surfaces and sealants around Australia.

Lee and Jess spoke to Ryan from Planet Ark about this program.
