Our environmentally-conscious council has a “recycling station” at the library where you can deposit items for recycling.    In fact, there are 5 different categories.     Thinking that they had in fact covered all the bases, I took some used printer cartridges to the library.  Nup!   You can deposit batteries, CDs/DVDs, videos/cassettes, phones and associated equipment and old X-rays – but there’s no category for printer cartridges.

I know there are lots of other places where you can deposit these for recycling, but it did seem just a trifle incongruous to me.
