How to Recycle Your Toner Cartridges

Posted by Adrian Tolhurst on January 22, 2014 under Toner Cartridge Recycling | Be the First to Comment

Following on from my last post on the drive by UK councils to promote recycling and reuse, I noticed on Ricoh’s website the statistic  that:

Only about 15% of the 65 million printer ink and toner cartridges used in the U.K. are recycled. The majority end up in landfill, where it can take more than a thousand years for them to break down.

recycleThis is a truly shocking statistic, especially when considering that there are many schemes that provide free collection for recycling empty toner cartridges. So why do so few people recycle their toners? Well, there are possibly a few reasons.

  1. Not all companies will take back every toner, this means that people have to sort through them. The thought of getting covered in toner can be a deterrent.
  2. People are unaware of potential schemes available to them.
  3. Not all schemes are equal. People may have experienced hassle or problems when recycling in the past, which deters them from recycling.
  4. People can’t be bothered.

So, there seems to be a variety of reasons that deter people from recycling. At Toner Cartridge recycling we have three promises.

  1. You won’t have to spend a lot of time separating toners.
  2. You will receive professional and friendly service.
  3. We will always pay you on time.

All you have to do is:

  • Save them
  • Pack them up
  • Call us
    …and we’ll do all the work!

3D printers a step closer to printing a mobile phone

Posted by Adrian Tolhurst on under Printers and Ink | Be the First to Comment

3dprinterThere has been lots of hype about the new generation of 3D printers when, in reality, the things that they can print are very limited. It is impossible, for example, to print a working IPhone. It is possible to print the casing, but it has not been possible to print the complex circuitry that makes the thing actually work – until now!

Microsoft Research in the UK have found a way to print the complex silver circuit boards on to paper.

According to The New Scientist

The new system has been tried on $80 inkjet printer and it worked well on photo-quality paper.

So, perhaps it will soon be possible to print a working mobile phone or laptop.

More to the point, they don’t say what will happed to the empty cartridges full of silver ink!
