Staples' ink recycling program

Staples has announced that starting today, it will recycle ANY brand of ink and toner (including Canon, Brother and Epson) and pay $3 back in Staples Rewards

According to the company's press release:
"Customers can simply bring empty cartridges to any Staples store, each of which will earn them $3 back in Staples Rewards® or Staples Teacher Rewards®, on up to 10 cartridges per calendar month. Ink and toner recycling Staples Rewards are sent monthly and can be used on any Staples purchase in store, online or over the phone."

While I'm not always thrilled with Staples' prices, this is good news, since there's been few payback options for those of us who don't use a certain brand of printer. My Canon hates "compatible" cartridges, and the refill folks I've dealt with won't touch a Canon cartridge. So this will help take the edge off the ink prices.
