The most strangest of times!

Stay safe and well

The weather has been reflecting the unpredictable nature of 2020 so far. We have seen soaring temperatures, torrential rain, high winds, and then calm and beautiful sunny days. At the same time we remain uncertain about the easing of the lockdown as so many are vulnerable and the last thing anyone wants to do is see the number of cases rising.

We have taken a quiet stance here at PU. Ready to support our customers when they need us, particularly our care homes and schools but it has been a lot quieter. If you need toner/ink we are, in the main, posting it out rather than delivering whilst we wait – as we are all waiting, for this virus to be subdued. The summer months are going to be the most worrying as we just don’t know yet if there will be a second surge – so we wait, and wait, most of us being cautious and willing to go slowly as these are the strangest of times.

Let’s hope this virus is seen off soon.

Remember, if you need more printing supplies we are here for you, just email us or use the contact page.

Zero Waste collections in schools taking off!

Our aspiration to get to zero waste with our used ink and toner cartridges is taking off.  More and more of our schools are getting involved, and quite a  few of our business clients are too-  so well done and thanks to you all.  We were able to send a good load off to our zero waste partners last week – we were very chuffed!  It doesn’t cost our clients anything as we pay for the collection service that zero waste offer so if you aren’t already on board, please just ask us about it.

Filled to the brim and lined up nicely for ready for collection – nice to know every bit will be reused, nothing going to landfill – keep saving them and we’ll keep recycling them.

Zero Waste Recyling

We are delighted to have partnered with zero waste recycling and hope to help all our customers to collect their empty cartridges in the boxes we are providing – then we pick them up and send them on to zero waste – and they really do put everything to use – hence ZERO waste!   See their short video here Zero Waste video link

Here at Printers Unlimited by Roberts Ink we particularly love the idea of plastics going to sort the pot hole problems!    Please find some space for a box in your office/school so none of our empty cartridges end up in general waste.  If you haven’t had a box from us yet please drop us an email and we will bring one out to you. Let’s all do our bit.
