Recycle your empty Roland ink cartridges at GJS
SYDNEY, Australia - November 7, 2016
Your empty Roland ink cartridges can now be recycled at GJS. Simply drop them into our showroom in Revesby, give them to a GJS technician at your next scheduled service, or to our GJS Sydney Metro delivery driver when dropping off your next order.
All empty ink cartridges are returned to Close the Loop, Australia’s largest recycling and resource recovery company for imaging consumables. Driven by a philosophy of zero waste to landfill, Close the Loop reuses or recycles 100% of every inkjet cartridge that is collected, as shown below:
- Ink – is converted from waste to energy in a contained area. This can then be stored and used in a range of ways
- Plastics – are sorted, broken down, and made into pellets to sell to manufacturers for re-use in new products, such as cartridges, pens and rulers
- Metals – metals are separated by eddy current and magnets into ferrous and non-ferrous and sold to or passed on to partners/suppliers for re-use.
For every 1 tonne of imaging consumables collected and recovered by Close the Loop, approximately 10 tonnes of carbon (tCO2eq) savings is recovered.
