Lake Forest-based Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS), recently announced a company record for recycling nearly 228 metric tons of used toner products in 2017 through its "Zero Waste to Landfill" program.
Since the beginning of this program in 2008, Toshiba has prevented more than 1,000 metric tons of e-waste from filling open land. Toshiba also accepts and recycles other vendors' spent toner consumables, and is the first manufacturer to do so. Through its partnership with internationally-recognized recycling company, Close the Loop, Toshiba recovers and separates materials from spent imaging products into usable toner, plastic, and metal utilizing a zero-thermal recovery process.
According to Tom Walter, TABS Vice President of Distribution and Aftermarket Sales, "Toshiba's commitment to the environment is a core value of our company and something that's taken very seriously by our leadership and workforce. We are pleased that many of our clients share this interest and the success of our 'Zero Waste to Landfill' initiative is just one example of how they have embraced this mindset.” Congratulations Toshiba!
