Collection and Recycling

For effective use of resources, we promote the collection and recycling of used products and consumables.

Collection of Ink Cartridges

Used ink cartridges and bottles are sent to our collection center, where they are separated according to their constituent materials and then recycled. Plastics are crushed and recycled to produce plastic products or components. Metals are reused as raw materials. This procedure enables approximately 90% of all collected cartridges to be recycled.
