Town to Begin Charging for Ink Cartridge Disposal

As of March 1, businesses will have to pay a fee to drop off used printer and copier cartridges at the Vegreville Material's Recovery Facility

A new bylaw will implement a fee to recycle printer cartridges at the Vegreville Material's Recovery Facility.

Town Councillor Mike Simpson says that the decision, made at their last council meeting, will off-set the cost of disposing the hazardous material.

The cost will be dependent on the size of the cartridges being brought in, ranging from $1 to $3 per cartridge.

The change takes effect March 1st.
