Someone on SD reported that a California Staples store did not accept cartridge recycling because of the coronavirus issue.
I just recycled 20 cartridges on 3/20, no issues.
Another data point from SD:
“They’re doing this in ALL staples stores as of this last monday 3/23. If they’re not then they’re not following the corporate memo. Basically until further notice they won’t accept Staples Ink Recycling so don’t waste your time going unless maybe you call ahead of time to see if they didn’t get the memo or something.”
