How Can My Company Setup Its Own Recycling Service?

If you’re reading this, we’re glad, because that means you share some of the same values as we do. Providing a recycling service enables you to contribute to the reduction of a number of organisations carbon footprints while simultaneously reducing their impact on climate change and promoting a circular economy.

Despite all of this, setting up your own scheme exclusively for your customers is by no means easy. Firstly, the amount of resources needed to create such a scheme are likely more than you would have thought. You’ll need a team of employees to exclusively deal with your customers and prospects requests, as well as deal with all paperwork and documentation. Staff will also be needed to deal with all inbound cartridge collections.

Next is the issue of space, which links to cost too. Where do you plan on putting all of these used toner cartridges? Do you also have the specific training, documentation and licenses to create such a scheme? You’ll need access to a licensed waste carrier as well as an authorised treatment facility for all of your customers WEEE waste.

As a reseller, you should stick to what you do best – moving products out the door. Let us do the heavy lifting by bringing your cartridges back for you:

Our award winning recycling service will run seamlessly alongside your day to day operations while appearing as your own service in the eyes of your customers while we do all of the hard work.

At the same time, you can use our service as evidence of your ability to provide a green and sustainable service to each and every one of your customers. Why is this important you might ask? Well, 88% of customers want you to help them make a difference and change the world for the better; our service does just that.
