In a busy, fast-paced office, there is a good chance that you will get through a considerable amount of printer consumables over the year, and in some cases, get a printer upgrade along the way.

However, if you’re not disposing of your older, used goods correctly, it can negatively impact the carbon footprint of your office and the wellbeing of the environment.

If you’re using a lot of printer consumables and are unsure whether your method of disposal is environmentally-friendly, we’ve listed some key reasons why you should always recycle your printer goods.
For more information on the benefits of printer recycling and why you should ensure that your office is making good use of the recycling facilities available, read on:

Schemes available

There are currently lots of recycling schemes available, from legitimate manufactures like HP.

These schemes will allow you to easily recycle any ink or laser toner cartridge that you may have, from any large manufacturer, including Samsung cartridges, without any fuss or confusion.

Choosing to use one of these schemes will give you peace of mind that none of these materials will go to landfill and that you have chosen a guilt-free method to dispose of them.

Some disposal methods such as the HP recycling scheme, and many other printer cartridge recycling plans, are completely free and can be done easily online.

This is a huge step in making printer recycling easier, as it will mean that there is no extra cost to the office, and it will not affect productivity in your workplace, as is takes minimal time out of your working day.

Due to the fact that these schemes are free, there are no longer any excuses for failing to recycle your printer goods!

A greener office

Ensuring that you recycle every used toner cartridge and printer part, rather than throwing them out with typical rubbish, will result in a much more eco-friendly office – something that you can be proud of.

Reducing the amount of waste that you send to a landfill will greatly reduce your carbon footprint, and mean that you can continue to use printer products without feeling guilty about disposal.

Pairing this eco-friendly choice with other greener actions, such as using recycled paper for written notes and turning lights off when you’re not using them will improve your office’s eco status. Along with this, it will also set a good example for your colleagues, and perhaps encourage them to lead a greener lifestyle.

As you can see, there are many benefits to recycling your printer goods, and many ways to do this without spending unnecessary money or time. It’s also a great additional way to help your business meet its green targets and commitments.
