KEY FACTS ABOUT TONER RECYCLING:
• Using a recycling scheme prevents air pollution, which would be created during the manufacturing process of creating new toner cartridges.
• Used toner cartridges are 97% recyclable. A typical cartridge is 40% plastic, 40% metal and a smaller percentage of rubber, foam, paper and toner.
• A recycling scheme prevents cartridges reaching landfill and the need for new materials being sourced
Sadly, most used cartridges end up in landfills in the U.K. or overseas, where it will take centuries for some parts to fully decompose. Worse than the environmental impact is the human cost: many cartridges end up in cities like Guiyu, China, where they are incinerated or dissolved with hazardous chemicals to extract residual metals. These processes contaminate the local air, soil and groundwater.
