Recycle your printer cartridges

Mira Header Cartouches

Help Mira and the planet

Since 1994, Mira has been committed to educating the Quebec general public about the recycling of printer cartridges and cell phones. As well as representing concrete action for the environment, this initiative funds the training of many Mira dogs.

A two-part program

The cartridge recovery program is aimed at both businesses and individuals in Canada and helps to protect the environment and fund several Mira dogs.
