Printer Cartridge Recycling Program
Close the Loop works closely with the major printer and multifunction manufacturers to provide a FREE collection service to end-users of used printer cartridges and associated consumables. We manage our generic Close the Loop program as well as custom branded programs. The programs are entirely funded by the manufacturers of your print devices, so please support them by using only original cartridges. The manufacturers of cheap compatible cartridges do not take any responsibility for their products after sale.
Collection boxes are installed in thousands of corporate and government workplaces and schools New Zealand wide. If there is a collection box where you work, you can bring in your cartridges from home and drop them into your workplace box.
If you don’t have a collection box at your workplace and if you use a minimum of 3 imaging consumables per month (toner bottles, laser cartridges, drum units, fuser kits, inkjet cartridges etc) from a participating manufacturer, then register for a collection box.
We will supply you with a Starter Kit consisting of box, lid, pre-labelled bags and ties to get you started, along with an information sheet on how the process works. It’s simple and easy to participate. We can then provide you with reporting on what your company is collecting and diverting from landfill; this information can be used in your sustainability reports.
Close the Loop’s operations are independently audited annually to ensure adherence with our brand promise of Zero Waste to Landfill, something we have achieved every year since inception in 2001.
