Sharp Taps Recycling Company Close The Loop In Ongoing Commitment To Facilitate Toner Recycling

Sharp Printer & Copier CartridgesNew alliance will extend Sharp’s current toner recycling program: “Stop, Drop and Recycle”

Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, has announced a collaboration with materials recovery company Close the Loop as part of its ongoing commitment to encourage environmentally improved business practices.

This alliance will extend Sharp’s well-known “Stop, Drop and Recycle” program. Close the Loop will manage and facilitate the program by providing recycling kits to companies and institutions that use Sharp toner. Users will receive a kit in the mail with pre-labeled boxes for all Sharp consumables including used toner and drum cartridges, bottles and waste toner collection kits. All Sharp cartridges are 100% recyclable in full support of Sharp’s commitment to the goal of zero waste to landfill. The program is free of charge to Sharp customers.

“This collaboration aligns directly with Sharp’s corporate vision to contribute to the world through environmentally-improved and health-conscious businesses,” said Doug Albregts, president, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “Working with Close the Loop on our Stop, Drop and Recycle program provides a valuable service to end users and the environment. We’re proud to collaborate with a company that is outstanding in its field, committed to the benefits of recycling and passionate about protecting the environment.”

Sharp will have access to valuable information regarding users’ recycling submissions and habits through Close the Loop’s customer data. Sharp can leverage the trend evidence through the development of recycling program enhancements.

Sharp’s alliance with Close the Loop adds to a history of action from Sharp to improve the environmental impact of its products by engaging customers and including them in the effort. Other current recycling initiatives from Sharp include participation in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s “Plug-In to eCycling” program, created to reduce the environmental impact of electronic products during their production, use, transport, recycling and disposal, and co-founding and participation in the Electronic Manufacturers Recycling Management Company.
