Pitney Bowes Ink The Sustainable Way

October 12, 2010

Perhaps your business leases or owns a Pitney Bowes mailing machine such as the Pitney Bowes dm800 or the Pitney Bowes dm500, or one of many other Pitney Bowes inkjet machines.  Have you seen how much Pitney Bowes charges for a replacement Pitney Bowes dm800, or Pitney Bowes dm500 inkjet cartridge?  Did you know that their are replacement options for your Pitney Bowes that are less than half the price and are also environmentally friendly?  Did you know that Pitney Bowes cannot void your Pitney Bowes warranty because you used a compatible inkjet cartridge replacement?  For example the  pitney bowes dm800 can cost over $150 plus shipping and at Print Green USA, Inc. you can get an inkjet replacement for the Pitney Bowes dm800 for $89.00!  The next time you need a replacement for your Pitney Bowes stamp machine look no further than Print Green USA for your Pitney Bowes ink.  Why pay more?

Questions:

Pitney Bowes won’t stand behind their warranty? Or Does Pitney Bowes have to warranty their machines if I use a compatible cartridge?

-Pitney Bowes must honor their warranty no matter what brand of cartridge you use.  It is THE LAW.  See the magnusson moss act for more information.

Atlanta Ink Cartridge and Laser Toner Recycling

December 8, 2009

Do you wonder what to do with that empty cartridge when your printer or copier has used all of it’s ink or toner up and it is time to replace it? Do you know the impact that tossing that laser toner or ink cartridge into the trash has on your environment?

This year, over 700 million ink and toner cartridges will be consumed in the United States. A small fraction of empty cartridges will be recycled, but many more end up in landfills. Hazardous chemicals from the cartridges can pollute the environment, while the plastic they’re made of will take centuries to decompose. -Wastewise

One local option is a company based in Gwinnett County. Print Green USA offers recycling services for your spent and/or surplus imaging supplies (laser toners, ink cartridges, drums, etc). Print Green USA, Inc not only sells laser toners, printer drums and ink cartridges, but they will recover their clients empties for recycling.  They also will recycle empty laser toners and ink cartridges that were not purchased there.

For More Information, Please Contact Print Green USA via Their Website: Toner Recycling

Remember To Think Green In Gwinnett!!!

-If you have information on other local toner cartridge recycling options, please email: giga@greeningwinnett.org and we will review for posting consideration.
