Local Cartridge World Partners with Conservation Plainfield on Recycling Effort

Cartridge World of Plainfield and Conservation Plainfield have partnered on a fundraising event which will expire June 30, 2012. Community members can visit the Conservation Plainfield web site,, to download a valuable coupon and save on refilling ink or toner cartridges while at the same time helping Conservation Plainfield raise funds. The coupon is good for either $3 off one ink refill or $10 off one toner refill at the Cartridge World located at 4722 Caton Farm Rd. (the southeast corner of Caton Farm Rd. and Rt. 59). When these coupons are used, Conservation Plainfield will receive a cash reward. For net sales from up to $2,500, Conservation Plainfield will receive 5% back. For net sales $2,501 and over, Conservation Plainfield will receive 10% back.

Cartridge World of Plainfield and Conservation Plainfield are also making a difference in the local community. The cartridge supplier business has partnered with Conservation Plainfield to provide recycling bins for community members to drop off their empty ink and toner cartridges for recycling at the Plainfield Village Hall, Plainfield Public Library, Plainfield Park District Recreation/Administration Center, Plainfield Township Administration Building, and the Plainfield Area Chamber of Commerce office.

"We are so excited to do our part in this great initiative," said Ed Pocius, franchise owner of Cartridge World of Plainfield. "We believe in giving back to the community. Not only do we give back by recycling, we also give back by taking part in local community efforts like this. This sponsorship is for a great cause and we're glad to be able to contribute to such a beneficial community effort."

"Our mission is to offer businesses and consumers an affordable choice when it comes to their printer cartridge needs," said Pocius. "Many people realize that buying a new printer cartridge is neither cost-effective nor environmentally-friendly. We give them a choice to save money while helping save the environment through reusing their cartridges.”

“It’s nice to have a local business like Cartridge World of Plainfield that is so proactive in their conservation efforts,” said Cameron Bettin, President of Conservation Plainfield. “We are very appreciative, not only that they have provided cartridge recycle bins in various locations throughout the community, but also that they are willing to donate and give back to a community organizations like ours.”

Cartridge World is the leader in printer cartridge refilling and remanufacturing. It provides consumers and businesses with an alternative to reduce the impact of the millions of cartridges that are thrown away and end up in landfills each year, according to Pocius.

Conservation Plainfield was founded in 2001 as a cooperative venture of various government agencies and residents. Representatives meet on a monthly basis to discuss conservation issues, determine ways to increase the public’s environmental awareness, and to offer educational opportunities through various programs, events and projects.
