Toner Cartridge Return Program (All-in-one and multiple components toner cartridges)

• This program's goal is to achieve zero landfill waste by reusing parts, recycling materials and employing energy recovery. Canon's cartridges are made so that they can be reused and recycled. When the used toner cartridges are shipped back to Canon, the parts are sorted and disassembled to be reduced to plastics, metals, and other reusable parts. Canon asks that customers wait until the used cartridges amount to more than one so that energy and resources used during transportation will be less.

Toner Container Collection Program (Plastic Toner Containers)

•  To continue with the goal of zero landfill waste, Canon has made this program for plastic toner containers. Since these containers are made primarily of plastic, it is possible to recycle locally which saves energy that would have been associated with the transportation of containers. If the containers cannot be recycled locally for whatever reason, Canon asks that the customer ship them to the address below at their expense. Canon assumes responsibility for the containers once they are received.
