Increasing demand for eco-friendly remanufactured printer cartridges, for both home and office use, has seen one of the UK’s leading recyclers of ink jet and laser toner cartridge urge local consumers to act more responsible before throwing old cartridges into the dustbin.
Xprint was founded five years and has recently relocated from Middlesex to the Avanta business centre in College Road. “The needless disposal of printer cartridges is estimated to account for more than 15,000 tonnes of waste plastic and metal each year,” comments Abbas Shivji, general manager of Xprint, “Yet the recovery of and reuse of toner and inkjet cartridges reduces landfill by millions of cubic feet of non-biodegradable material and each recycled cartridge conserves the equivalent of approx one litre of oil!
“We already supply remanufactured cartridges and recycling boxes to a wide range of retailers, such as PC World, but now we’ve made it even easier for individuals and business users to recycle their old cartridges and mobile phones. By using our special freephone number 0800 191 0828 callers can request Freepost envelopes and labels for their old cartridges and for every cartridge they mail in we’ll even donate up to £1 and up to £3.50 for every mobile phone we can recycle as part of our ongoing support to reducing carbon. Xprint’s recycling division Recyclecartridge.Org actively promotes donations to worthwhile and charitable causes like the Hospiscare and Carbon Life Ltd to name a few.
“We’ve only recently relocated to serviced office space in Harrow, as the speed with which the Avanta team helped us move in and set up a VPN link to our dedicated warehouse was exceptional. The location of the centre is also extremely convenient for London Underground, motorways and Heathrow Airport.”
“The printer is the lifeblood of any office and to keep them running, companies need ink and paper that perform superbly, cost-effectively and reliably,” adds Fay Jessup, Avanta’s centre manager. “And they need to source these with minimal fuss and cost and in as environmentally-sound a way as possible.”
