Toner and Cartridge Recycling Service

Our Free Toner Recycling Service aims to ensure we help our clients meet their environmental obligations, in line with WEEE guidelines and government legislation. We provide customers with a recycling¬†box and when it’s full, a quick call to the number on the box ensures its collected and replaced free of charge.

Even better, you can put ANY photocopier or printer consumables and toner cartridges into your box, even ones not originally supplied by MiD. Once collected, the toners will be recycled on your behalf and a waste transfer note created for your records.

Furthermore, if you commit to using the Free Toner Recycling service, MiD will provide the Responsible Toner Recycling logo (above) for you to use on your website and stationery to show you are a responsible comany and encourage others to follow your lead.

Our Manufacturing Partners

MiD actively seeks to partner with manufacturers and suppliers who also make the environment, recycling and sustainability a priority in their own businesses.In 2008 Toshiba, Sharp and Panasonic established an electronic product recycling management company, Electronic Manufacturers Recycling Management Company, LLC (MRM), to spearhead electronics recycling and collection.

Toshib Carbon Zero Scheme

Many companies now recycle toner cartridges, but Toshiba has now gone further and manufactures components used in their multifunction printers from recycled plastic, operates a Zero Carbon scheme to cover manufacture and delivery and has now produced a multifunction printer that can actually erase the print and reuse the paper, establishing their place not only as a market leader in technology, but in their approach to the environmental challenges and sustainable business practices.

The Climate Crisis

It is increasingly clear that human activities are affecting the global climate, to the extent that many countries have declared a climate emergency and low lying counties fear for their very existence, so it is vital that we find ways to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

Climate Crisi

Recycling has become extremely important as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment. Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites and incineration plants.

Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste, reduce habitat destruction caused by mining and drilling and the global warming caused by the chemicals released by our waste.

Reasons to Recycle your Ink and Toner Cartridges

Firstly, up to 85% of the material used for ink and toner cartridges is now recyclable. Recycling these items directly reduces the amount of non-perishable material that is added to our waste disposal and landfill sites.

It conserves our natural resources such as timber, water, oil/petroleum and minerals because it reduces the need for raw materials and the exploitation of natural resources.

Recycling is good for the environment as it takes less energy to create new items from recycled materials than it does to create new products from raw materials. It also reduces air and water pollution/emissions associated with landfilling, incineration or the manufacturing of new cartridges.
