Advantages of Using Remanufactured Cartridges
Remanufacturers inspect empty cartridges for damage and then repair or
replace broken parts, thoroughly clean the reusable components, and refill the cartridge with new toner.
Using remanufactured cartridges has significant economic and environmental advantages:
- Remanufactured cartridges save money. Recycled
cartridges are from 30 to 60 percent less expensive on a cost per copy basis.1 King County, Washington, procured its remanufactured toner cartridges through a long-term contract at about
a third the price of new, saving $350,000 on 4000 units.2
- Remanufactured cartridges create jobs. Purchasing remanufactured toner and
inkjet cartridges and recycling the empties are two ways to create jobs and strengthen
the local economy. In 1998, there were more than 6000 remanufacturers in the
US, most of which were locally owned businesses.3
- Remanufactured cartridges save energy. Approximately three quarts of oil
are burned in the production of a single new toner cartridge. A used cartridge
can be remanufactured up to four times, depending on type and condition, saving
up to three quarts of fuel each time.4
- Remanufacturing minimizes waste. Remanufacturing cartridges decreases the
amount of plastic, steel, aluminum, and rubber sent to landfills and burned in
incinerators. According to Recharger Magazine, cartridge remanufacturing
reduced municipal solid waste by almost 38,000 tons in 1998.5
