    Samsung Launches Free Toner Cartridge Recycling Program
    Samsung makes it easy for businesses and consumers to recycle their used cartridges
    IRVINE, Calif.—-Samsung Electronics America, Inc.’s Information Technology Division announces the Samsung Takeback And Recycle program (STAR) that will offer free return and recycling of empty Samsung brand Toner Cartridges for both business and consumer owners of Samsung’s award-winning line of laser and multi-function printers.This advanced, environmentally conscious recycling program safely reprocesses returned cartridges into their major usable component materials and then makes those bulk reprocessed materials available to the commodity marketplace for reuse in new manufacturing for a range of other products. This free service for Samsung laser printer owners insures that cartridges returned through this program are not sent to landfills or otherwise improperly disposed.The STAR program offers two simple, no cost options for customers to return empty toner cartridges. Select Samsung toner cartridge boxes will contain a pre-addressed, pre-paid FedEx shipping label. To return the cartridge, a customer simply inserts the used cartridge into the empty box from the new, replacement Samsung toner cartridge, and can then contact FedEx for a free pickup, or drop the box off at any of the 51,000 FedEx drop off locations nationwide. Customers also can drop off their shipment at the more than 1,600 FedEx Kinko’s Office and Print Center locations throughout the U.S. Alternately, any Samsung laser printer owner can go to http://www.samsung.com/starus where they can print out a pre-addressed, pre-paid FedEx return shipping label. The same free and convenient FedEx drop off options apply if customers chose to print their own labels as well.

    According to a recent research study by Infotrends (www.infotrends.com), nearly half of all exhausted OEM toner cartridges in the U.S. and Western Europe are thrown out by users and not returned for recycling. Samsung’s program is designed to be simple and convenient, with the aim of encouraging printer users to return their cartridges and thereby reducing the number or cartridges thrown away and not recycled.The STAR program addresses the final phases of the product lifecycle for exhausted toner cartridges, insuring they are collected and reprocessed in a safe and environmentally responsible manner, thereby minimizing their overall environmental impact and preventing these empty cartridges from ending up in landfills.“An important Samsung Green Management objective is to take responsibility at each stage of the product lifecycle for the environmental impact of our products,” said Mr. JH Kim, ITD Division President for Samsung Electronics America, “including offering a completely free and simple to use recycling return program that provides Samsung users a convenient way to insure exhausted products are reused in an environmentally responsible process.“Samsung also offers the EnviroSync Trade-Up Program for owners of other printer and display brands, offering customers who purchase energy-efficient new Samsung IT printer and display products a convenient way to return their old electronic equipment and ship it to Samsung’s U.S. recycling facilities for proper processing.
