    Toner Cartridge Remanufacturing Saves the Environment
    WALTHAM,
    Mass.–May  2006–You are concerned with global warming, the economy
    and the environment. You strive to make a difference in all that you do
    and for that reason, you faithfully recycle. At home you separate
    plastic, tin and aluminum for the local recycler and at work you
    recycle your used paper and empty toner cartridges. Have you ever
    wondered what happens after you return cartridges to a recycler? Are
    you really making a difference?The magnitude of cartridge recycling
    efforts was recently outlined in a detailed report by the International
    Imaging Technology Council, a not-for-profit trade association that
    represents the interests of the world’s imaging supplies
    industry.”There are more than 5,000 printer cartridge remanufacturers
    or dealers in the United States today who are responsible for employing
    35,000 people and withholding more than 38,000 tons of industrial grade
    plastic and metals from landfills every year.”The average
    remanufacturer restores 338 cartridges per month, and is therefore
    saving 264 gallons of oil and 845 pounds of solid waste from landfills
    each month. Stacked one on top of the other, a tower of cartridges
    produced annually by an average remanufacturer would exceed the height
    of the Empire State Building.”(1)Tricia Judge, Executive Director of
    the Council, prepared the report. She goes on to say that, “While other
    manufacturing industries are shrinking or disappearing, the printer
    cartridge remanufacturing industry is growing and thriving.”"There are
    three different paths a spent toner cartridge can take,” advises Joe
    Rogan, COO of Clarity Imaging, manufacturer of PageMax. “The first is a
    cartridge that can’t be used. Those are melted down and the plastic is
    used for other items like lawn chairs. The second is refilling, which
    is what most remanufacturers in the industry are doing. The third is
    total recycling, which is what Clarity Imaging does. The only part of
    the cartridge not recycled is the last remaining dregs of used toner.
    We reuse every piece of the empty toner cartridge including the
    cardboard box it’s shipped in.”You can feel good about your recycling
    efforts as they relate to toner cartridges. With over 5,000 printer
    cartridge remanufacturers or dealers in the United States today, you
    will find a good home for your empty toner cartridges.
