A Simple, Waste-Free Solution To Responsible Disposal
Businesses today are looking for ways to lower their impact on the environment, to work cleaner, smarter, and more responsibly. Kyocera’s ECO footPRINTTM Toner Recycling Program offers a way to do just that, taking all the effort out of recycling empty Kyocera toner containers.
HOW IT WORKS
Customers can request recycling boxes from their authorized Kyocera dealer. Fill the boxes with depleted and waste Kyocera toner containers, seal and send to our recycling facility partner, Close the Loop.
That’s it! There are no shipping or recycling costs to our customers. It’s our way of saying thank you for helping us uphold our commitment to working in harmony with our environment.
WHERE IT ALL GOES
It might be easier to say where it doesn’t go…to the landfill. That’s right. 100% of every Kyocera toner container recycled through the program is transformed into useful objects that serve a necessary function. Our partners at the Close the Loop recycling facility are able to repurpose the materials into items like pens, park benches, and even asphalt!
