Buying U.S. Remanufactured Inks

Buying U.S. Remanufactured Inks

, by Planet Green, 3 min reading time

Organizations are choosing U.S. Remanufactured Ink cartridges at all of their office branches. It’s a decision that saves them literally thousands of dollars a year in printing costs; an expense that is necessary when they handle a lot of documents daily.

Ink cartridges have a number of components to make them function properly. Manufacturers include specific designs that make a cartridge unique to that machine. It might be the print head on the cartridge, or that the cartridge is designed to fit into a print head that is part of the printer itself. Some are slim, some are oversized, and some include multiple colors in the individual cartridge. One thing they all have in common is that they use a plastic tank to hold the ink, and that plastic tank can most likely be remanufactured.

Because ink cartridges are a consumable plastic product, there needs to be a solution to recycle the waste. When thrown into the trash they eventually end up in landfills where it can take upwards of 1000 years for that plastic cartridge to break down along with left-over ink and toner residue leaching toxins into the environment.

Empty OEM ink cartridges can be recycled by sending them to a remanufacturing facility. Original equipment manufacturers, brands like HP and Canon have their own cartridge return program for recycling empty cartridges. This option helps keep a circular economy working. It takes virtually no effort to simply send them back to keep them out of landfills.

Another option would be to send your empty ink cartridges to Planet Green Recycle provides a free shipping label direct from their website and gives you a discount on purchasing remanufactured inks when you do. This keeps the ink cartridges out of the trash and keeps you printing with less expense by providing U.S. Remanufactured Ink Cartridges to replace your inks.

In the process of remanufacturing an empty OEM core ink cartridge, each cartridge must be inspected, cleaned, rebuilt, refilled, and tested to meet or exceed OEM specification and performance. This ensures that nothing gets wasted and that the product can continue to live past its original lifecycle, without the need to manufacture a new plastic cartridge.

- It extends the life of the ink cartridges.

- It minimizes waste.

- It reduces the strain on the environment.

- It provides a cost-effective solution to the cost of printing.

- Does not affect your printer’s warranty.

U.S. Remanufactured Ink Cartridges are created using empty OEM ink cartridges. There are literally millions of cartridges sold on marketplaces like Amazon that are not OEM cartridges, but they are made to potentially fit into your printer. They call them “compatible,” or sometimes “clones.” Once emptied, these clone cartridges aren’t suited for the remanufacturing process and they end up in U.S. landfills. This is why supporting U.S. Remanufacturing is so important.
