Why send us your cartridges?

  • CMB-Site_Service-collecte-10

    Because the consumption of new cartridges is growing year by year.

  • CMB-Site_Service-collecte-11

    Because one laser cartridge takes around 1000 year to degrade.

  • CMB-Site_Service-collecte-12

    Because 11 million cartridges were sold in France in 2014, which represents 19,400 tonnes of empty cartridges.

  • CMB-Site_Service-collecte-13

    Because one laser cartridge contains 1.5 kilos of plastic, aluminium and other non-biodegradable substances (like iron oxide, nitrate, etc).

  • CMB-Site_Service-collecte-14

    Because producing the plastic for one new laser cartridge shell requires 2.5 litres of oil.

  • CMB-Site_Service-collecte-151

    Only 20% of the millions of OEM laser cartridges sold are re-used.
