    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.
