Recycling for Raptors

submenu

The Raptor Center has decided to end our inkjet recycling program as of August 31, 2016.

Recycling for Raptors has a been part of TRC since 2003.  We have recycled over 100,000 cartridges since the program began nearly 18 years ago. 

Due to recent changes in the resale marketplace and business shifts to refillable and subscription programs for inkjet cartridges, there is no buyer for about 70% of the cartridges we collect, and the price paid for cartridges has also declined significantly.  TRC has decided to close the program.

Going forward

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (WRC) of Minnesota based in Roseville, MN  has opted to take over the program.  

Thank you for your support over the years.

If you have any questions contact until August 31, 2016.
