Samsung offers Canadian recycling program
runs on a zero landfill policy
Samsung Electronics has announced a new recycling program
in Canada. The Samsung Take Back and Recycling (STAR) Program, is a free
service designed to help manage ink cartridge waste.
Supported by Canada Post, Samsung now offers free returns and recycling
of empty Samsung-branded toner cartridges for its line of laser and multi-function
“A founding principle of the STAR program is that it operates on a Zero
Landfill policy – 100% of the cartridge and related materials returned
under this program are recycled and reused,” said Ronald Hulse, vice
president sales and marketing, IT Division, Samsung Electronics Canada.
The advanced, environmentally conscious STAR program safely reprocesses
returned cartridges into their major usable component materials, such
as plastic and metals, and then makes those bulk reprocessed materials
available to the market for re-use in new manufacturing for a range of
other products. The STAR program offers a simple, no-cost option for
customers returning their empty Samsung toner cartridges.
