REDUCE -- REUSE -- RECYCLE and SAVE!!!
ABS participates in Close the Loop, a zero waste to landfill recycling program.
It allows for 100% recycling of collected consumable supplies such as cartridges,
drum units and toner bottles. Best of all, it manufactures eLumber using all the
waste that was once considered unusable.
To help our customers participate in this same program, we provide everything
you need including recyclable collection boxes, supplies, freight, transportation
and recycling services. Several of ABSí technology partners have formed Electronic
Manufacturers Recycling Management (EMRM) to provide a convenient way to recycle
consumer electronics goods. This has already resulted in approximately 400,000
pounds of e-waste diverted from U.S. landfills.
Benefits of optimization include the reduction of electrical consumption by anywhere
from 300 to 1,500 kWh per year. Eliminating singleuser devices can positively
impact the environment by reducing supply usage, energy consumption and waste
to landfill. For instance, 60,000 pages printed on the e-STUDIO655 uses 1 toner
bottle while the same number of pages produced with desktop printers uses 30 toner
