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.

FundingFactory Participants Collect Nearly 300,000 Recyclables in ‘Care2Collect Just 1’ Campaign

FundingFactory participants collected nearly 300,000 recyclables through the ‘Care2Collect Just 1’ campaign in November. The nation’s largest fundraising by recycling program pledged to donate $1 for every 100 qualifying recyclables it received, raising $3,000 to support the Second Harvest Food Bank. During the campaign, participants were encouraged to simply recycle one e-waste item, such as a printer cartridge or cell phone, through FundingFactory, and donate one non-perishable food item to their local food bank. The campaign aimed to help schools, nonprofits and businesses protect the environment while supporting their local communities.
