Printer Cartridge Recycling with 123mds and Randpark Club

by | Aug 11, 2021

We may still look like the new kid on the block, calling the shots by inviting you to partake in something other than a great round of golf …

As important as it is to play a round of golf with the members of Randpark Club, is how important the environment is to us … now that’s very important!

123mds, an Authorised Partner of Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa, is participating in the Kyocera Recycling Programme extended to all Kyocera Partners.

123mds invites all Randpark Club members, together with Carbon Footprint Recycling, to help battle against e-waste by disposing of empty laser and copier toner cartridges, ink cartridges, and waste toner bottles in the proper manner.

The idea was borne out of the need to keep hazardous materials out of landfill sites. Printer cartridges in their decomposed state are hazardous.

Carbon Footprint Recycling creates concrete-based products such as dustbins, vegetable planters and benches out of the recycled cartridges.

Recycling printer cartridges is the right thing to do and there are other benefits, such as job creation and reducing waste that is sent to landfills.

Some interesting facts:

  • Hundreds of thousands of cartridges are sold into the market every month and less than 20% of these are recycled.
  • An average of 1,3kg is added to the landfill each time a laser cartridge is thrown away.
  • It takes 3,8 litres of oil to make a laser printer cartridge.
  • Put all the cartridges sold in one year end-to-end and it would circumnavigate the earth 3 times!

Recycle your printer cartridges with 123mds, Kyocera and Carbon Footprint Recycling by:

  • Bringing your empty cartridges to the Club and putting them in the collection bin in the main reception area.
  • Contact us via email at carmen@123mds.co.za or alternatively follow the link www.cfafrica.co.za for more information on this recycling programme.

Recycling is the right thing to do for our environment.
