Toshiba breaks e-waste recycling record

April 18, 2019

The OEM has revealed that it has recycled more than 1,229 tonnes of e-waste since 2008.

Continuing its commitment to “maintain a more sustainable planet,” Toshiba America Business Solutions recycled more than 229 metric tonnes of e-waste stemming from used toner products in 2018. The total marks the highest amount of e-waste the company has recycled in a calendar year.

Since partnering with international recycling company Close the Loop in 2008, Toshiba has prevented more than 1,229 metric tonnes of e-waste from hitting landfills, which the OEM claims is “the equivalent weight of 10,712 average-sized professional football players.”

Through Toshiba’s ecoSmart Toner Recycling program, the company’s spent imaging products are transformed into reusable material via a zero-thermal recovery process. These components are often incorporated within future products, thereby contributing to the circular economy.

“Fostering and maintaining a sustainable environment in the communities where we live and work is a signature mandate of Toshiba as well as a primary directive for many of our partner and client organisations,” said Toshiba America Business Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer Scott MacCabe. “While our leadership and workforce are pleased with the success of our recycling program, we strive to continue our commitment and improvement to this vitally important initiative.”

Powder recovered from recycled toner cartridges is a primary element in an asphalt product to resurface roads. Plastic from spent toner consumables is also used to create pens and rulers.

Toshiba’s toner recycling program is described as “a primary reason” for the listing of the company’s award-winning e-STUDIO multifunction printers on the EPEAT (Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool) registry, the definitive global rating system for greener electronics.
