Think Green and Recycle

Laser Catridges

Each year, millions of empty toner and inkjet cartridges used in printers, fax machines, and copiers are thrown in the trash, destined for landfills and incinerators. Buying locally remanufactured toner and inkjet cartridges, and recycling empty cartridges, is an easy way for institutions to reduce the environmental impact of these discarded products, while also saving substantial tax dollars and bolstering the local economy.

Recycling toner and inkjet cartridges is a process of collecting, sorting, cleansing, treating, or reconstituting for the manufacture of new products or the remanufacture of used cartridges.

The typical used toner cartridge weighs about three pounds and is composed of 40 percent plastic, 40 percent metal and smaller percentages of rubber, paper, foam and toner. The plastic is made of engineering-grade polymers and takes at least 1,000 years to decompose. However, approximately 97 percent of these combined components can be recycled or reused.

Remanufacturing cartridges decreases the amount of plastic, steel, aluminum, and rubber sent to landfills and burned in incinerators. Additionally, a considerable amount of energy is saved by remanufacturing. For example, approximately three quarts of oil are consumed in the production of a single new toner cartridge. A used cartridge can be remanufactured up to four times, depending on type and condition, thereby compounding the environmental benefits.
