When our ink cartridges or toner run out, the key question arises: what should we do with them? The obvious answer is to recycle them. In this blog, we will explore the importance of recycling ink cartridges, highlighting the commitment of Tricopiers, a leader in photocopier rental, to the environment.

Directive 2012/19/EU

The European directive, in force since the summer of 2018, urges all electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) to be widely and properly recycled. Manufacturers take responsibility for recovery in the final stage of the life of these products, thus ensuring their valorization to conserve future resources.

Recycling Ink Cartridges: A Shared Responsibility

The printing activity involves a series of essential devices, from printers and toner to paper and wifi connections. When these devices reach the end of their life, recycling ink cartridges becomes crucial. Tricopiers highlights the need to raise awareness about the polluting effects of these cartridges, both inside and out.

How to Recycle Correctly

Recycling ink cartridges is fundamental for the environment. Local institutions, both public and private, play a crucial role in establishing Clean Point locations or recycling centers. Tricopiers encourages users to deliver depleted cartridges to these locations, where a proper recycling process takes place. From schools and universities to cinemas and restaurants, participation in recycling ink cartridges is rewarded with discounts on menus or free movie tickets. Businesses also promote recycling, with dedicated spaces for depositing cartridges that are then transported to nearby clean points.

Mobile Clean Points

To overcome accessibility barriers, mobile clean points bring recycling to the city center. Tricopiers highlights this initiative, bringing the possibility of recycling to everyone, regardless of geographical location or vehicle availability.

Why is Recycling Ink Cartridges Important?

Despite the importance of recycling, only 30% of users recycle their toners, according to data from an analysis by a distributor of alternative consumables for printers. Faced with the low recycling rate, we emphasize the importance of becoming even more aware of the recycling effort, considering it vital for the preservation of the environment. Tricopiers invites its customers and the community at large to actively participate in this cause, taking advantage of Clean Points and contributing to the creation of a more sustainable environment. Recycling ink cartridges is not only a responsibility but also an opportunity to make a difference in preserving the planet.
