IMAGINE DUMPING 1,370,000
USED TONER CARTRIDGES
HERE EVERY DAY

400,000,000 ink jet cartridges and 100,000,000 laser jet cartridges are thrown away annually. That’s over 200,000,000 lbs of solid waste and 4,000,000 cubic feet of space added to our landfills per year. Each cartridge takes from 450 to 1,000 years to decompose.

TRI Industries is commited to helping reduce that waste by remanufacturing or recycling used cartridges.

Remanufacturing is far superior to recycling. All cartridges are inspected for damage, split, cleaned, digitally filled, resealed and assembled to meet or exceed OEM performance. They
are backed with a 100% guarantee. All original packaging materials are recycled. All cartridges that can’t be repaired are recycled into reusable raw materials.

Just as important as reducing landfill is the reduction of fossil fuel consumption. Each new toner cartridge uses 3.5 quarts of oil to produce and each new inkjet cartridge requires 2.5 ounces of oil.

TRI Industries is committed to exceeding the expectations of our customers while preventing pollution and minimizing the environmental impact of our activities. Best practices of TRI Industries Services include:
