Laser Printer - An Environment Printer Approach


At Australian Printer Services Pty Ltd we are serious about looking after the environment and endeavours to responsibly dispose of used printers and environmentally unfriendly spare parts that customers do not wish to retain.

We can now offer a programme that allows you to recycle your unwanted printers. An optional Certificate of Recycling can be provided with each batch completed. Each certificate serves as confirmation of recycling of each batch/load of e-waste.

Australians send 34 printer cartridges to landfill every minute.

That equates to 2,050 an hour. That's 5,000 tonnes per year.
Or 21 times the combined weight loss of all Weight Watchers
members in Australia in 2006!
