The typical used toner cartridge weighs about three pounds and is composed of 40 percent plastic, 40 percent metal and smaller percentages of rubber, paper, foam and toner. The plastic is made of engineering-grade polymers and takes at least 1,000 years to decompose. However, approximately 97 percent of these combined components can be recycled or reused. Guttz builds every cartridge using recycled plastic shells and helps save tens of thousands of pounds of landfill annually.
Less Wasteful Manufacturing.
Additionally, a considerable amount of energy is saved by remanufacturing. For example, approximately three quarts of oil are consumed in the production of a single new toner cartridge. A used cartridge can be remanufactured up to four times, depending on type and condition, thereby compounding the environmental benefits.
The Smarter Option.
Today's recycled toner cartridges provide equal if not improved quality as compared to new cartridges. Additionally, their advantages over new cartridges in cost and waste reduction make recycled cartridges an economically and environmentally sound choice.
