CTS advocates “zero waste policy”

CTS advocates “zero waste policy”

April 25, 2022

The company has been explaining how it has been successfully reusing 98% of its empty products, giving an insight into its product cycle and processes, using its partner Zero Waste Recycling.

UK-based CTS Toner Supplies is an advocate for a “zero waste policy” and prides itself with its success in reusing nearly all of its empty products, with the help of its partner Zero Waste Recycling. Giving an insight into the process and product cycle the company follows, CTS gave a run down of steps used to ensure maximum reuse is ensured.

  1. Identify any cartridge which can be reused.
  2. Any cartridge that either cannot be reused due to damage or the age/type (meaning there is no market for the item), is broken down into their raw materials on-site and sent for reuse in its core materials – plastic, metal, toner powder.
  3. Any product found to have POPs (Persistent Organic Pollutants) is not allowed to be broken down but instead of landfill goes through an incineration process as per the new regulations set by the environment agency. The heat from this incineration process is recovered into energy known as waste to energy.

Based on the past seven months’ data, the company proudly added: “The good news is that 98% of our empty products are reused or recycled in stages 1 or 2 with only 2% being incinerated and ultimately converted to energy. This means 0% going to landfill.”

Speaking further about steps the company takes to be more environmentally savvy, the company said: “Our manufacturing partners proactively reuse and recycle OEM parts into remanufactured products, many of which are operating at between 80-90% recycling based on original product weight.”

The company’s product packaging is calculated according to load volume and weight to best utilise stock, preventing oversizing and unnecessary/waste shipment space during carriage.

The company added: “Most of our product lines are dispatched with inner packaging such as box buffers for product protection, dust prevention sealed plastics and outer carton boxes, all of which are recyclable.

“We operate a zero-waste policy with regards to cardboard packaging. Since the early 2000’s we have shredded all inbound packaging cardboard and reused it as outbound product protection, reducing the need for single-use plastics such as bubble wrap and plastic air cushions.”
