Toshiba American Business solutions announced that it had set a company record of recycling with nearly 228 metric tons of used toner products in 2017. The company has utilized its Zero Waste to Landfill program to achieve its success.
The company has prevented more than 1,000 metric tons of e-waste from filling open land since 2008. Toshiba also accepts and recycles other vendors' spent toner consumables.
With its partnership with Close the Loop, Toshiba has been able to recover and separate materials from spent imaging products into usable toner, plastic and metal utilizing a zero-thermal recovery process.
"Toshiba's commitment to the environment is a core value of our company and something that's taken very seriously by our leadership and workforce," said Tom Walter, Toshiba America Business Solutions vice president of distribution and aftermarket sales. "We are pleased that many of our clients share this interest and the success of our 'Zero Waste to Landfill' initiative is just one example of how they have embraced this mindset."
