SAVES YOU MONEY!!! Remanufactured cartridges cost less than new ones. In most cases, 30 to 60 percent less.
It's Easy. By contacting a local re-manufacturer, you can have high-quality remanufactured cartridges delivered right to your door. Be sure to ask about other environmentally friendly, cost-effective products and services that he can deliver.
Saves Natural Resources. More than three quarts of oil are required to produce each new laser cartridge. In just seven months, cartridge remanufacturing will save 11 million gallons of oil, or more than that which was spilled by the Exxon Valdez in Alaska's Prince William Sound in 1989.
Reduces Solid Waste. Over 38,000 tons of plastic and metal are saved from landfills each year as a result of cartridge remanufacturing. The plastic used in each printer cartridge takes more than ten centuries to decompose. The average re-manufacturer salvages and restores enough cartridges each year to equal the height of a 120-story building.
Creates Jobs. Remanufactured cartridges come from local, small businessmen in your community. They are specially trained in this technical profession and spend a great deal of time studying new technology advancements as they become available. On average, each remanufacturing business employs six people. New cartridges are often mass-produced overseas or by computers. When you buy from a local dealer, those dollars help support your local economy.
Provides Excellent Quality. Remanufactured cartridges contain high-quality components and toners which yield outstanding results. Remanufacturing technology has become so precise that remanufactured cartridges often exceed the original equipment manufacturer's standards.
Saves tax dollars. Every used cartridge thrown into a landfill costs a taxpayer money. Even a cartridge that is recycled through standard recycling efforts must be "reclaimed" through a process that costs tax dollars and consumes energy. Remanufactured cartridges are restored without ever entering any waste stream, which means substantial savings for taxpayers over the life of that cartridge.
