Consumables recycling program

Recycle and reduce waste

The Ricoh consumables recycling program, in operation since 2001, has set the benchmark for sustainable business practices within the industry. The program collects spent parts and reclaims the plastic and metal for reuse, effectively reducing waste in the process.

How to register for the service

Registering for the recycling program is done by completing an online registration form, which normally takes two business days to process. Once you have been registered for the service you will receive an email indicating the type of service you are eligible for along with your registration code.
