- “E-Waste” is a term used for waste generated from technology products and includes toner cartridges, computers, monitors, etc. This waste has been going to China and S.E. Asia in tremendous volumes, creating severe conditions in towns where this waste is handled.
- As Asia Creates tougher restrictions on the importing of e-waste, more empty cartridges will remain in the U.S. and end up in landfills.
- Each cartridge with an average weight of 2.5 lbs is made primarily of industrial grade plastic that takes 1,000 years to degrade.
- Every year the aftermarket imaging supplies industry reclaims over 42,000 tons of empty toner cartridges that would have otherwise been diverted to landfills.
