Consumables recycling program

This is a free program designed to be used by our customers to deal with the waste produced once our toner cartridges and parts have been spent. The Ricoh Consumables Recycling Program encompasses toner cartridges, toner bottles, waste toner containers, photoconductor units, fuser units, maintenance kits and other consumable products. The program recycles spent consumables reclaiming the plastic and metal for reuse, reducing the reliance on virgin material.

The program has been in operation since 2001 and set the benchmark for the office automation industry then, and continues to set ambitious targets for cartridge collection to date.

There is a simple 2 Step process for customers wishing to be involved in the program;

Step 1: Simply register online for the service.

The registration process usually takes a day or two in which time the appropriate service will be selected for you and you will receive a Welcome email indicating the type of service and your Registration Code. Please note that the Registration Code is case-sensitive, so please keep the Welcome email for future use.

Step 2: Returning the used consumables depends on the type of service you are registered for:

Ricoh will accept used consumables from any manufacturer’s facsimile machine, printer or photocopier from Ricoh Customers. A fair use policy applies.

1) Postback Service for Low Use Customers in All Areas: For Customers using less than 6 consumables per month per location
