The empty toner cartridge recycling program offers comprehensive solutions for our dealers, as well as our own production. ILG takes pride in our quality controlled superior manufacturing processes—starting from our procurement policy utilizing “virgin” OEM cartridge cores, new OPC drums, and use of flawless wiper blades, to our proprietary Leak-guard system. ILG’s stringent manufacturing standards allow us produce the highest quality products matching OEM specifications and performance.
ILG’s Empties Buy Back program is easy and free to implement. ILG will supply you with free labels, pay for the shipping, and pick-up services for large volume customers. This simple program offers turn-key collection logistics, opportunity to make money, free-up warehouse space, and most of all... helping to save the planet’s precious resources and keeping the environment clean.
“Empty cores are the lifeblood of the industry—there have always been concerns in regards to long-term procurement. By offering a lucrative buy back program, we are able to sustain our production demands by maintaining empty core flow and keep these empties from trash. We have experienced a tremendous growth in our color products due to our superior color engineering technology; this has increased the demand on empties as well.” Said, Senior VP of Client Relations, Joe Shulman.
ILG takes corporate social responsibility very seriously. ILG plans to cooperate with resellers and dealers on their community outreach and collection program.
ILG’s recycling program conforms to ISO 14001:2004 standards. The program also maintains a ZERO LANDFILL Initiative, which means that approximately 97% of all material received through the program will be reused or recycled. We want our customers to take comfort in knowing that no product received will end up in a landfill. ILG’s packaging is made from recycled fibers. ILG is a proud partner of the Certified Fiber Sourcing/Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Call our empties department at 800-937-2880. www.ilglaser.com
