Through the cartridge collection programme, Carbon Footprint Africa collects cartridges from over 100 informal cartridge brokers, allowing for the cartridge brokers to earn a living.
Most of these cartridge brokers are previously disadvantaged individuals. A commodity that was once thrown away and destined for landfill is now helping these individuals earn a living through the collection and recycling of these cartridges.
Further jobs are created in inspecting, sorting, and packing cartridges. A cartridge thrown away denies us this opportunity, and we ensure we contribute as much as is possible to help boost the earnings of these enterprising recyclers.
