    New Recycling, Return Program Will Recover More Toner and Supplies for Reuse
    Conn., Nov  2010  — Xerox Corporation launched today a new return and
    recycling program that simplifies the way customers return toner and
    supplies and expands the company’s effort to keep billions of pounds of
    waste out of landfills.Xerox is partnering with Close the Loop, one of
    the world’s largest recyclers of imaging supplies that specializes in
    cartridge returns. Close the Loop will collect customers’ returns and
    manage the recycling on behalf of Xerox using a patented material
    separation process that recovers used materials for reuse in new printer
    cartridges and other products.

    Similar to Xerox’s popular Eco
    Box program in Europe, customers in the United States will place used
    supplies into a collection box. When the box is full, customers simply
    print a free-of-charge shipping label and send the box to Close the
    Loop. Instructions are printed on the boxes, which are available in the
    United States starting today. Customers can order the boxes through the
    redesigned return and recycling website, The
    website also includes instructions and provides several features that
    make choosing and using a returns process more convenient, including
    bundling returns together and other options.

    This new effort is
    an extension of Xerox’s pioneering Green World Alliance program, an
    initiative launched in 1999 that established the company as a global
    leader in waste reduction and environmental stewardship. “During the
    past 12 years, our collaboration with customers has kept more than 143
    million pounds of cartridges, bottles, and waste toner out of
    landfills,” said Patricia Calkins, vice president, Sustainability,
    Environment, Health & Safety. “As we continue to make it easier for
    customers to participate in our remanufacturing, reuse and recycling
    efforts, we get closer and closer to our ultimate goal of zero
    waste.”"Close the Loop also is working towards zero waste,” said Jim
    Tocash, company president. The company returns cartridge component parts
    to the marketplace as useable raw materials so nothing goes to the
    landfill. “Xerox is on the forefront of zero waste initiatives — and
    was there long before it was popular,” Tocash said. “Our role at Close
    the Loop is to make the returns process that much simpler so more
    customers join in on the effort. Working together with Xerox we push the
    goal of zero waste forward to minimize our impact on the environment.”
