''Our company's inkjet recycling scheme allows customers to recycle genuine Canon inkjet cartridges for free and ensures 100% of each cartridge is diverted from landfill.

According to the company, there is more than 97% of each cartridge has been either reused or recycled into new products while the remaining 3% will fall to the waste-to-energy sector.

Again to explain the purpose of the said agreement, one of its great intention is to greatly reduce EU Industry's carbon footprint emission in terms of printing and copying.

This wonderful move by Canon has resulted in more than 287,000 tons of printer toner cartridges that were collected globally, which leads on saving more than 185,000 tons of raw materials needed in the production of printer consumables. Since 1990, the printer toner cartridges recycling scheme has been running in 20 countries - 16 countries where in EU.
