At Copeco we are proud of our association with Sharp, and we especially appreciate their commitment to the environment. As part of its goal to reduce landfill waste, Sharp offers a copier toner recycling program called, “Stop, Drop, Recycle.”
In 2004, Sharp Corporation established standards for Super Green Products, and the company has been committed to improving its environmental sustainability management ever since. In fact, since 2004 all Sharp production facilities have been ISO 14001 certified. This ensures that Sharp’s environmental management and pollution preventing systems are maintained.
As a Copeco customer, you can participate in Sharp’s free recycling program, which offers convenience for you and keeps toner cartridges out of landfills. In this post, I’ll share the benefits of this environmentally friendly program and how you can participate.
Recycling That Is Convenient
When it comes to recycling, collection is half the battle. Sharp makes it easy to gather and ship your toner cartridges using its Bulk Recycling Kit. It contains:
• 3 pre-addressed, prepaid Sharp cartridge collection/shipping boxes
• 3 clear plastic liners
• 3 zip ties
Each collection/shipping box can hold up to 10 used toner cartridges. We suggest placing each box in the mailroom or near your Sharp printers and copiers for easy placement of used cartridges. Once a box is full, a liner and zip tie ensure no leakage during shipment.
The final step is to simply put the prepaid package in the mail—it really is that easy! Sharp is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of its products, including safe disposal at the end of a product’s life. The “Stop, Drop, Recycle” program is proof of that promise. All consumables are 100 percent recycled with zero waste going to a landfill.
