Environmental Responsibility

When people think about recycling, they usually think of items like paper, glass and cans.

E-waste, which includes laser printer cartridges, inkjet printer cartridges, copier cartridges, fax cartridges, and multi-functional peripherals (MFPs or all-in-ones) along with used cell phones and IT equipment like desktop PCs, laptops and servers have been somewhat overlooked, but account for a growing portion of recyclable material.

E-waste is having a larger and larger negative impact on our environment.

Improper disposal of e-waste harms our environment by damaging air, soil and water, and takes up ever-increasing space in our landfills. And, for the most part, it takes less energy to make a product from recycled materials than it does to make it new from scratch!

That's why EOS is committed to providing customers with environmentally sound, income-generating, closed-loop recycling solutions with seamless, integrated and fully supported recycling solutions for print cartridges and cell phones.
