FAQs
How much does it cost to participate?
The program is free. USPS delivers and picks up boxes for free. We provide you with a customized webpage and other marketing material.

How much revenue can I expect?
The value depends on what is recycled. Qualified inkjet cartridges are typically worth $0.50 to $2.00. Recent toners are worth up to $10 and cell phones are worth between $.25 and $9.00. In any case, a report on what each cartridge/phone you recycle is worth is available online. A typical box of cartridges is worth $10 to $50. A 20-30 person office can be expected to generate $100 worth of recycled product in a year.

How is the revenue distributed?
Your school receives 78% of every dollar received from whatever is recycled by your school and businesses/individuals and retail locations signed up under your school. ASP keeps 22% to administer/market the program free of cost to the chambers and schools.

In addition, you receive 28% of funds received from recycling by your local chamber of commerce and its members.

Why is it that the value for the cartridges you pay is in some cases lower than those others pay?
This recycling program aims to make recycling very simple. We will accept everything and guarantee that nothing is thrown into landfills. Others, on the other hand, insist that you recycle only what is on their list and will deduct shipping costs if you send them an unqualified piece. We provide attractive recycling boxes and offer a strong-cause-related opportunity to your members.
