With the earth’s natural resources getting rarer, and subsequently more expensive, greater
emphasis is being placed on re-cycling and reusing materials. Take for example the humble
toner cartridge. More and more companies are collecting them as part of their environmental
policy; but have you ever wondered what happens to them after they are put into the
recycling bin. There is a lot of useful material in an old toner cartridge, so long as they are recycled correctly and don’t end up in a landfill site. Some, of course, can be re-filled and sold again but the
majority of them are broken up and the materials made into a multitude of new items.
Some, we have heard, are even made into lobster pots!
We at Allied Office Machines like to do our bit for the environment and have been recycling our toner cartridges for many years. As part of our service to you, we can collect the empty cartridges from the printers we have supplied, and then arrange for them to be sent off for proper recycling.
So if you are thinking of how you can recycle more, we can definitely help. Give us a call today on 01794 526088 and we will tell you what you need to do. At the end of the day it means that better use is being made of our natural resources and less waste is going into land fill, which has got to be good.
