Environmental Considerations

Canadians throw away over 10,000 laser toner cartridges per day, and that there are already 15 thousand + TONS of laser cartridges in Canadian landfills.

Some U.S. figures:

Each of us will leave a legacy of 90,000 pounds of garbage-80% of it buried in landfills. To make matters worse, we're running out of space. 14,000 of our 20,000 landfills closed between 1978 and 1988. By 1996 over 2,500 more are expected to close.

Plastic Facts:

Each of us throws out 2 pounds of plastic containers every month. Americans throw away enough plastic soft drink bottles each year to circle the Earth four times. Over 95% of our plastic waste could be reused or recycled. Of the six most hazardous waste generating chemicals used in production, the plastic industry uses five.

Trash into cash:

Office paper has the highest value of all recyclable papers. Every year, U.S. businesses throw out enough used paper to build a 12-foot-high wall coast to coast. What can you do? Recycle and save money! There are many organizations that will assist you in recycling. Keltech Laser can help you recycle your printer cartridges. Every cartridge we re-manufacture is material kept out of the landfill... AND saves you money. ;-)
