Our aim is to simply take away the hassles associated with IT disposal and provide our customers with a
complete peace of mind solution for the management and retirement of redundant IT equipment
Our IT recycling service covers the collection of all quantities of printer and photocopying equipment including large format printers, plotters and scanners.
Printers and photocopiers record each document printed or photocopied in their memory; This could include sensitive data. When disposing printers at the end of their working life, you need to ensure that your disposal partner will erase or shred the electronic data on your asset to protect your company's brand and confidential data.
Our Printer recycling service also covers the collection of all spent toner and Ink cartridges. In the UK alone, more than 30 million inkjet cartridges are disposed of per year. Digital Growth’s stringent 0% land fill policy means our printer disposal service ensures all spent ink and toner cartridges are recycled in environmentally friendly manner.
Printer recycling is an essential part of the weee recycling solution. Plastic gases, and other similar products are used for the production of modern electronics including printers. Lead is one example of harmful content that is used for electronics manufacturing and one that poses a huge threat to the health of anyone exposed to this element. Furthermore, dumping these e-wastes into landfills can result in harmful chemicals being released into the air, which are then inhaled by those who live close to landfill sites causing serious danger to their health. Printer and toner recycling can help reduce the impact e waste has on the environment and to those that live near by.
Many people have switched to inkjet printers for home use. They work reasonably well for low volume printing but the cost of ink cartridges is very expensive compared to toner cartridges. You will soon spend more than the cost of the printer on ink. Over-priced ink cartridges are a huge profit center for printer manufacturers. They practically give away the printers in order to get your ink business.
Businesses on the other hand use mostly mid-sized or large LaserJet’s because they have an excellent build quality and can easily last 5 to 10 years. Toner cartridges for Laser jet printers can be a bit pricy but you get far more prints compared to inkjet cartridges and parts and maintenance kits are readily available for Laser jets. Overall a quality Laser jet is a much greener printing solution than buying a cheaper inkjet that you end up replacing every 2 or 3 years.
