Sustainability in Action

Officeworks x Close the Loop Recycling Pop- Up Day

For over 20 years, Close the Loop have partnered with Officeworks and Planet Ark for the collection and recovery of printer cartridges and toner, saving millions of products from landfill and turning them into valuable resources.

Close the Loop are now working with Officeworks for their first ever People and Planet Positive Recycling Pop-Up Day, hosted in our local community area at Officeworks Coburg, on Saturday April 6th from 10am to 3pm.

We’ll be taking used tech and batteries from visitors, in order to safely process and recycle them while keeping these important, finite materials out of landfill. We’ll be answering all your questions about the recycling process, and providing insights into where materials go once they’ve been collected by Close the Loop and why battery safety in particular is so important.
