    Lexmark Environmental Report Progress in 2007
    OAKLAND, Calif. –Lexmark, is working on recycling more and throwing away less. In its “2007 Environmental Sustainability Report” Lexmark overviews its environmental programs and some of the progress it’s made.

    Last year, the company recycled 49 percent of its non-hazardous waste, sent 21 percent of it to landfills, incinerated 10 percent of it without recovering energy and incinerated one percent with energy recovered. Among non-hazardous waste, 49 percent was recycled, 17 percent sent to landfills, 30 percent incinerated with energy recovered and four percent incinerated without energy recovery.The printer maker reuses or recycles all of the parts of ink cartridges that it collects, and last year started a cartridge recycling promotion in Puerto Rico that provides a $2 discount on new cartridges for each cartridge that is returned.Lexmark has also removed all PVC from inkjet cartridge packaging, replacing it with paperboard and PET or HDPE plastic, and is researching materials to increase the amount of recycled content in products.
