Machine recycling program
As the community focuses more on the environment and clean disposal of commercial and other waste, it is vital that responsible companies develop voluntary programs for handling end of life products. No longer is it acceptable to dispose of office machines by committing them to landfill or shipping them offshore. It is for this reason that Ricoh launched their machine recycling program.
This program is designed to enable our customers to recycle their Ricoh devices once they have reached the end of their life. Since its launch in 2002, we have successfully recycled over 180 tonnes of Ricoh devices into reuseable materials. It is an integral part of our Product Stewardship policy.
As a responsible organisation Ricoh has developed viable recycling options here in Australia rather than exporting our waste machines offshore and creating disposal problems elsewhere. We accept all Ricoh machines as well as third party machines (OEM) for reuse or responsible recycling. We are constantly refining the process of end-of-life recycling of machines in order to achieve a greater resource recovery rate and minimise the impact of our products on the environment.
Contact us or speak to your Ricoh representative to find out how your organisation can get involved.
