"IT'S ESTIMATED A TONER CARTRIDGE CAN TAKE 1000 YEARS TO BIODEGRADE"
The life of a toner cartridge is limited, and dependant on the make of your toner cartridge it’s possible that it can be refilled and then reused. An average rule of thumb suggests that most cartridges can be refilled up to 3 times.
Where cartridges can no longer be refilled, or in the case of copies or remanufactured cartridges, the question arises of what to do with the spent cases.
Classified as hazardous chemical waste, it’s illegal for these waste toner cartridges to be dumped in landfill sites, which is why it’s important to find a responsible way for your business to dispose of used toner cartridges and ensure you’re compliant with current legislation.

WE COLLECT ?
Each used toner cartridge is broken down to its core component, separating plastic, metal and toner powder for reuse.
Recovered plastic is channelled back into the manufacturing chain where it is reused, metal is either reused or melted for new product and toner powder and dust is being widely used in the construction industry.
Working to current UK standards the process takes place here in the UK and is fully compliant with UK legislation, to this end we are able to provide full documentation to satisfy the environment agency that your business is meeting its ‘Duty of Care’ in the disposal of your waste toner cartridges.
