Ink and Toner Sales with an Environmental Twist

Cartridge World Buford has been proudly serving the residents and businesses of Buford  at 2725 Hamilton Mill Rd, Buford , GA 30519 across from Walmart behind the Chili's, for the last four years and before that they spent five years across from the Mall of Georgia.  Mary Hines the previous owner decided to pursue other interests in December of 2015 and sold the Buford Location Nancy McGill owner of Cartridge World Lawrenceville to the oldest and largest store Gwinnett County.
Cartridge World is a franchise with over 1000 stores worldwide. Their goal is to help the environment by taking  empty ink and toner printer cartridges printer and completely re-manufacturing them into ready to use cartridges for both the business consumer and the home user. Consumers get to save two ways with Cartridge World Buford.  They can reduce their carbon footprint by purchasing refilled cartridges which keeps them out of our landfills.  They can also save  up to 30% off of retail big box stores.

Nancy McGill and her team bring a lot of experience and customer service to the Buford area and are all excited to become a part of the Buford Community.  The Lawrenceville and Buford store have a full staff to serve you.  There are two customer specialists, Mattie Smith and Belle Young.  They spend most of their time visiting with both potential new business customers  as well as taking care of the needs of their current  business customers.  Eddie Diaz is the store manager of the Lawrenceville store and is instrumental in making sure that the Buford store has the product and support it needs, as well as offering his expertise as a printer repair technician for both locations.  The rest of their team,  Zach Miller, Cindy Gilbert and Rich Stoner overlap the other responsibilities of: marketing, their free business delivery service, inside sales, ink and toner re-manufacturing and technical support for both locations.  They have all been working hard to bring the store up to the same level of service that Lawrenceville, Snellville, Loganville and Grayson have been able to experience. 
Cartridge World has a great recycling program  for non-profits like the schools churches and other civic groups.  Cartridge World has given back over sixty-five thousand dollars back to the community over the past 11 years.  More than 50 Gwinnett County schools buy their ink and toner from Cartridge World. 

Nancy feels that it is important to give back to the community where she lives works and plays. She is a part of the Lawrenceville Rotary,  the Gwinnett Medical Center Women's Council and has been  Ambassador of the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce.  She is currently part of Leadership Gwinnett's class of 2016.  She was the Gwinnett Chamber Small business of the month in 2011 and 2012 and was Gwinnett Chamber Ambassador of the year.  She has been nominated as one of Gwinnett's top small businesses for Pinnacle awards in 2013 and 2014.
