Lexmark’s ‘green purchasing’ awarded by EPA’s WasteWise program

Lexington, KY— The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, through its WasteWise program, has awarded Lexmark International, Inc. a Gold Achievement Award for its accomplishments in using recycled materials. Lexmark was also recognized with an honorable mention in the large business category.

WasteWise is a voluntary program through which organizations partner with the EPA to eliminate costly municipal solid waste and industrial wastes, increase reuse and recycling of materials and encourage the buying and manufacturing of products with recycled content.

As one of the world’s largest remanufacturers and recyclers of printer cartridges, Lexmark keeps millions of pounds out of the solid waste stream. Lexmark also contributes to the general market for recycled goods by purchasing recycled-content materials for use in new construction and renovation projects, including walls, flooring, ceiling tiles and carpet.
