Ready to make changes to become an eco-friendlier business?

Is your office already recycling printer toner?

In April, many companies brainstorm how they can incorporate more environmentally-friendly practices in their daily business routines in honor of Earth Day.

Not sure where to start? We’ve got the tips for you and are ready to offer our partnership in electronic recycling to help your business takes the proper precautions to lessen your environmental footprint in the Ann Arbor community.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle! This is the obvious starting point to begin eco-friendly printing solutions in your office. You can start reducing by encouraging your office to keep documents digital, and only print when 100% necessary.

Another way to reduce is double-sided printing. Did you know the average office employee prints over 10,000 sheets of paper per a year? That’s almost a whole tree’s worth of paper! Small changes like this can be highly impactful.

Ways to reuse can be as easy as starting a scrap paper bin in your office for notetaking, or printing drafts. Switching to reuseable dishware in your office and ditching paper plates and plastic silverware is also helpful. Not only will this help you go green, but it will also help keep more “green” in your office’s budget. Another way we recommend to reuse is purchasing refillable ink cartridges.

Electronic Recycling

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that recycling electronics helps reduce environmental pollution of harmful toxins like mercury, lead, and cadmium in landfills and our soil. It also conserves energy that would be generated while manufacturing new products by reducing the demand for raw materials.

We can help you reduce e-waste by making the process of electronic recycling easy! We collect empty toner cartridges, obsolete computers, monitors, printers, and other office equipment from our current customers free of charge. Not one of our customers? Don’t worry, we’re happy to pick up your e-waste for $100.

Toner Cartridge Recycling vs. Toner Cartridge Reuse

While both recycling and reusing are both amazing eco-friendly strategies, reusing is the better option. Reusing ink and toner cartridges will help keep the e-waste out of landfills more effectively.

Compatible toners are built from scratch and are a cheaper option, due to being made with single use plastics. Remanufactured toners can have the inside springs and rollers replaced so that they can be refilled and reused in the future.

There is zero difference in the printing quality among the two options, yet the latter is more effective at reducing your carbon footprint.
