Ricoh Australia appoints Close The Loop for consumables recycling

May 8, 2024

Ricoh Australia announced that it has appointed Close The Loop as its consumables recycling partner of choice in Australia.

The appointment will further enhance Ricoh’s sustainability practices while providing customers with a more effective and seamless end-to-recycling customer experience to support waste reduction.

Close the Loop designs and manages ink and toner take-back, recovery, and reuse programmes all aimed at minimising waste and working towards a circular economy.

Ricoh said that its customers will benefit from Close The Loop’s focus on providing a single point of account management contact and are able to access and manage their own collections and order consumables.

Customers can also download their own certificates of destruction via the portal and these can be scheduled to be automatically sent to customers at agreed intervals. In addition, the company equips customers with educational materials and online resources to foster awareness and understanding of sustainable recycling practices.

Yasu Takahashi, Managing Director, Ricoh Australia, said: “Ricoh is committed to its responsibility towards a proactive reduction of impacts on the environment and strives to achieve a zero-carbon society. Globally we work towards a sustainable society through a Three Ps Balance—Prosperity (economic), People (society), and Planet (environment).

“In partnering with Close the Loop for an enhanced toner recycling programme, Ricoh is very excited that both organisations share a belief in a circular economy. Together we will be offering our customers not only a strengthened, more customer centric toner recycling program but one that will benefit their sustainability goals.”

Earlier this year, Close The Loop upgraded its Melbourne facility further enabling the company to boost capacity for transforming post-consumer soft plastics and toner waste powder into high-value recycled products such as TonerPlas, an asphalt-improvement agent that creates more sustainable roads.

New machinery in the facility also enables Close The Loop to use packaging waste for its recycled plastic injection-moulding resin rFlex, allowing materials to go back into tertiary packaging items such as Ricoh toner bottles as well as pallets, crates and wheelie bins.

As part of its ongoing sustainability programme, Close The Loop partners with Planet Ark, Australian Council of Recycling and the Battery Stewardship Council.
