CMB philosophy

CMB France is committed to preserving natural resources
and reducing waste.

    CIRCULAR
    LOGIC

    Re-manufacturing is part of an initiative for a circular economy, which limits the creation of new cartridges and the production of additional waste.

  • CMB-Responsabilite-environnement-06

    CONFIRMING
    OUR COMMITMENT

    Each of our cartridges bears an environmental label that informs users of the CO2 savings made by their purchase

    COLLECTION
    SYSTEM

    To prevent millions of cartridges from ending up each year in landfill, CMB has set up cost-free collection solutions, whatever the type and make of cartridge. Each year, we collect more than 200,000 cartridges

    WASTE TRACKING
    DOCUMENT

    The tracking of waste is ensured by a Waste Tracking Document (“Bordereau de Suivi des Déchets”). This document proves that the waste has been entrusted to a certified body for its treatment.

MATERIAL RECYCLING

  • CMB-Site_IMAGE-270x180_Environnement-05

    More than 95% of the waste coming from the manufacture of CMB France cartridges is subject to material recycling and no waste goes to landfill.

  • CMB-Site_IMAGE-270x180_Environnement-06

    Replaced components head for the ultimate waste recycling or destruction industry. They are carefully sorted according to their nature into different sectors.

  • CMB-Site_IMAGE-270x180_Environnement-07

    The residual toner extracted after cartridge dismantling is stored in metal drums cleared by our service provider. This toner is used as fuel in crematorium furnaces.

    The CMB France industrial site, located in the Loire, is ICPE classified (Installation Classified for the Protection of the Environment).
