How & Where to Recycle Toner Cartridges from Your Copier or Printer

Everything a business does has an impact on the environment in one way or another. Unfortunately, these impacts are more often negative rather than positive.

That is why when organizations contribute in any way to save the environment they actively promote their actions, and rightfully so. It isn’t always easy to change and adapt to new practices that contribute to a cleaner and healthier world.Toner Chips for Photo Copiers

However, there are some changes businesses can make that are easy to adapt and have a significantly positive impact on the environment. The implementation of recycling practices is one. This practice doesn’t just encompass regular waste but all waste, including printer cartridges.

Printer cartridges may seem harmless. However, the manufacturing process produces toxins, and improperly disposing of used cartridges has serious repercussion for the earth.

The manufacturing process of a single cartridge generates over seven kilograms of CO2 in the environment. Companies that do not recycle toner exacerbate climate change and put more non-degradable junk in landfills.

A single cartridge adds three pounds and three quarts of oil to a landfill. Remember, while a single cartridge may seem small, roughly 400 million cartridges are used in North America annually.
