Product End of Life - Collection and Recycling of Used Toner Containers
Our toner containers do not have a built-in developing roller or cleaning mechanism, which makes them suitable for easy reuse. We have been working on collection and reuse of toner containers since 1998. Empty toner containers sent from customers are collected at a collection center and then transported to a recycling plant. At the recycling plant, the containers are checked for reusability according to sorting criteria, and only those that meet the criteria are put into the recycling process. After being cleaned, the containers undergo strict inspections and tests that are the same as those performed for new containers, including visual inspection and airtightness testing. Those that have passed the inspections and tests are filled with toner and shipped to market as our products.
