    Xerox Goes Green – Signs Agreement with EnviroServe for a Recycling Initiative
    Emirates, the market leader in Document Management, Technology and
    Consulting Services today announced its strategic ‘green’ agreement
    with EnviroServe, a company established under a professional license
    with the activity of “Pollution and Environment Protection Services”,
    for the removal and recycling of old printing equipments, machines and
    imaging supplies such as print cartridges and toner bottles from its
    customers premises.
    To promote this program Xerox Emirates has
    commenced an aggressive marketing campaign which aims at educating and
    communicating its customers with the details and benefits of this
    recycling initiative which is based on programs available to Xerox
    customers in other parts of the world. More than 2.7 million cartridges
    and toner containers have been returned by Xerox customers for
    recycling in 2006 itself. Xerox has recycled 1.3 million pounds of post
    consumer waste toner and nearly 100,000 plastic bottles as part of this
    global program.
    “The main objective of this program is to help our
    customers who are initiating ‘green practices’ in their workplaces to
    reduce environmental waste by recycling their used machines, print
    cartridges and toner bottles. Xerox has a long heritage of supporting
    and promoting eco-friendly products and solutions and since1991 Xerox
    globally has successfully diverted more than 2 billion pounds of waste
    from landfills — the equivalent of the weight carried by more than
    166,000 trucks to various recycling programs worldwide”, said Andrew
    Hurt, General Manager Xerox Emirates. “We are delighted to offer this
    service to our customers supporting them in their own green
    initiatives.  As a result of this, we have signed a three year
    agreement with EnviroServe for the recycling of used equipment imaging
    supplies such as print cartridges and toner bottles.”

    The entire
    pick-up logistics will be handled by Xerox Emirates. For this purpose
    Xerox have already set-up warehouses to store the waste before it is
    handed over to EnviroServe who will then recycle the waste parts such
    as plastic, metal, glass or electronic components in accordance with
    international standards and requirements. Xerox also plans to launch a
    dedicated web link on its existing local website where customers can
    log in their request for a pick-up service as well as find additional
    information and logistic details of the entire program.
    “We are glad
    to have partnered with Xerox Emirates for this green initiative. We
    have been providing a wide range of green services to several global
    corporate clients. I am happy to see the awareness and inclination of
    local as well as regional companies towards recycling and this is
    definitely a positive step ahead towards preserving our environment.”
    said Stuart Fleming, CEO, EnviroServe, The Green Company.“In a world of
    finite resources, sustainable development means meeting the needs of
    the present without compromising on the needs of the future. At Xerox,
    we are ready to build on our heritage of eco-friendly firsts to help
    our customers discover ways to reduce the impact of their document
    management processes.” Andrew added.

     Xerox currently has one of
    the widest range of environmental friendly products including the solid
    ink imaging technology which has reduced the use of plastic cartridges
    by almost 90 percent. Xerox Emirates also recently signed a contract
    with Al Jowder for the distribution of chlorine free paper within all
    governmental and public sector establishments in the UAE.
