    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. More information on this program is available at:
