Toner Cartridge Recycling
This is a free program for all Ricoh customers, no matter how big or small, to recycle their used toner cartridges and waste toner containers. By using Ricoh’s Toner Cartridge Recycling Program our customers can be assured that 100% of toner cartridges and waste toner containers collected will be recycled, here in NZ.
Ricoh’s recycling partner, Croxley Recycling, manage all deliveries and collections of boxes on Ricoh’s behalf by a courier service.
Collections of used toner cartridges and waste toner containers are by way of a recycling collection box through an online request system.
The recycling process:
All plastic, metals and residue toner is recovered for recycling.
- The contents of each collection box are collated and sorted into plastic types and by toner colour
- The residue toner is cleaned out and collected into 20 litre paint pails by colour. This toner is sent to Enviropaints to be used as a pigment in their recycled paint range.
- Metal components are sent to scrap metal dealers.
- The various plastic types go to a number of different recyclers for reuse both in NZ and offshore.
