Toshiba America Business Solutions today announces it recycled 174 tons of used toner products in 2015.
The e-waste was collected via the company’s “Zero Waste to Landfill” program. The Irvine, Calif. tech company, in alliance with Close the Loop, separates the spent imaging products into reusable parts, toner, plastic and metal.
Toshiba also converts e-waste into "eLumber" to create such outdoor products as park benches, fences and garden boxes for community organizations and nonprofits like Habitat for Humanity. Plastic from spent toner products is converted into rulers and pens.
Many of Toshiba’s e-STUDIO™ multifunction products are part of the EPEAT (Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool) registry.
