Not recycling costs us £762million p a

There has been a survey which suggests that not recycling toners, inks, phones, MP3 players etc. costs the UK £762 million per year. I dont know how or where they arrived at that figure or even if it is remotely accurate but I do know that several schools have tried to reduce their IT budgets by using recycled toners and found that although their reject rate went up, it didnt go up much and they saved up to 40% on their ink and toner bills. It is not odd that we stick to what we know but is a little sad that, given the money that could be saved, IT depts dont persevere with looking at alternatives.
