A well-known Arkansas non-profit that works with individuals with disabilities is proving that going green has no limitations.
United Cerebral Palsy’s Arkansas operations has a nearly 10-year old company called UCP, Ultra Cartridge Products.
Centered in North Little Rock, the facility is a repository for empty toner cartridges from printers and fax machines. UCP recycles the cartridges by taking them apart manually, cleaning them, and putting them back together for usage. On average, 1,100 cartridges are recycled for sale each month by the line workers.
During the past 5 years, UCP has added a paper shredding and cardboard recycling plant to its operations. And it has plans for a new environmental business, a manufacturing recycling facility, in the works.
