    KONICA MINOLTA WANTS EMPTIES , LAUNCHES RECYCLING PROGRAM
    The company’s print component recycling program can be scaled to businesses of all sizes.
    Konica
    Minolta Business Solutions, a provider of imaging and networking
    technologies, announced the launch of the Clean Planet Recycling Program
    that will provide consumables recycling to customers. Whether relying
    on a single desktop printer, a fleet of Bizhub MFPs or professional
    Bizhub Pro or Bizhub Press production print systems, all Konica Minolta
    customers can reduce their ecological footprint with the Clean Planet
    Recycling Program’s return and recycle process.

    With the Clean
    Planet Recycling Program, customers will now be able to return and
    recycle all major consumables – including toner cartridges, imaging
    units, waste toner bottles, developer/developer units and drums – for
    all Konica Minolta models without any shipping or processing costs. The
    program also ensures that received recyclables are processed in an
    environmentally safe and responsible manner – no recyclable items are
    permitted to go into landfills.

    Small and home office customers
    can send in single consumable items for recycling by printing a postpaid
    UPS label from the Website, while a recycling box designed to hold
    10-15 consumables can be ordered from the Clean Planet Website for
    collection in midsize offices. When the box is full, a UPS label can be
    printed from the Website for shipping. For high-volume customers, Konica
    Minolta can arrange for the delivery and pickup of recycling pallets
    that hold a larger quantity of consumable items.

    To minimize
    energy and fuel costs associated with shipping, Konica Minolta has
    partnered with facilities located across the country, with collection
    points that are automatically selected based on the customer’s location.
    When labels are printed, the closest facility is automatically selected
    to minimize the energy and fuel costs associated with shipping.
    Shipping is further reduced by the Clean Planet box, which can hold
    multiple consumables.

    “Konica Minolta invested heavily in
    developing this program to ensure it would bring only the highest value
    to our customers, and we are excited to launch it as a critical part of
    our corporate environmental initiatives,” said Kevin Kern, senior vice
    president of marketing for Konica Minolta Business Solutions. “The Clean
    Planet Recycling Program seeks to ensure that we are not only
    addressing the environmental concerns of our customers, but also meeting
    Konica Minolta’s responsibilities for global sustainability. While
    delivering market-leading products and solutions is an ongoing
    commitment to customers, this new initiative ensures that customers can
    now count on Konica Minolta for much more than just their digital
    imaging needs.”

    The company also announced the release of the
    Magicolor 3730DN A4 color printer, which features integrated auto-duplex
    printing, 2400 (equivalent) x 600 high resolution image quality, and
    Konica Minolta’s smart calibration system – enhanced Automatic Image
    Density Control (eAIDC). Printing at 25 ppm in color and black and white
    with a 120,000-page monthly duty cycle, the 3730DN has a height of only
    13.6 inches and is Energy Star compliant.
