Refill World is Providing Consumers and Businesses with an alternative to protect the future of our environment. This Proactive solution to waste reduction is a Win / Win for consumers and the environment. Facts you may not know :

  • More than 3.4 liters (3/4 gallon) of oil are needed to make one new laser cartridge.
  • In just 12 months, cartridge recycling could save 4.3 million liters of oil in a country of 22 million people
  • Laser printer cartridges account for over 90% of all throw-away cartridges
  • A laser cartridge thrown into landfill can take up to 450 years to decompose
  • Buying a new cartridge uses more resources with a higher cost to you
  • Working for your community, in your community. As well as being environmentally responsible,
  • In one year, if the world's discarded cartridges were stacked end-to-end, they would circle the earth. In the next seven years, if all laser and ink-jet cartridges are saved from landfills, a bridge can be built from the Earth to the Moon - 223,000 miles!


    What are the Advantages of Cartridge Remanufacturing. ?
  • Resource Conservation – A Typical used toner cartridge consists of 40% plastic and 40% metal with the remaining 20% made up of foam, rubber, paper and left over toner. Approximately 97% of this material is reused in a remanufactured cartridge.
  • Energy Conservation – The energy equivalent of 3 quarts of oil is consumed in the manufacturing of a new cartridge. While there is energy consumed in the transportation of empty cartridges, it is far less than what is used to make a new cartridge.
  • Cost Savings – Remanufactured cartridges are less costly than newly manufactured cartridges, offering a savings to consumers of up to 65% less than the cost of new. Printer manufacturers are known to charge very high prices for new cartridges. They make a lot of money on these “consumables”.
  • Reduce Land Fill Needs – Every time a cartridge is remanufactured or recycled (after the cartridge is beyond useful life for remanufacturing), there is a reduction in the demand for land fill space. The plastic in a toner cartridge takes at least 450 years to decompose.
