“Magnum congratulates our customers in the Puget Sound for allowing us to recycle over 7,000 pounds of toner cartridge parts in the last three months,” stated Magnum CEO Steve Seavecki. In response to customers’ interest in having a measurable way to determine their contribution to reducing carbon emissions and reducing landfill waste, Magnum automated industry statistics and research to develop a Carbon Calculator for toner cartridges. The Carbon Footprint Calculator computes the amount of oil, raw materials, trees, water and gas saved when using remanufactured toner cartridges versus single use toner cartridges. And it adds up quickly, three quarts of oil and up to 9 pounds of materials are conserved every time a remanufactured toner cartridge is used.
By using toner cartridges manufactured and recycled by Magnum, one Magnum customer has saved the following over the last 12 months: 3,600 quarts of oil, 10,800 pounds of raw material, 4,800 pounds of recycled material kept out of local landfills, 8,250 gallons of water and 1,440 pounds of greenhouse gases.
According to Seavecki, “most people don’t believe they can impact global warming. However, the simple switch to locally manufactured and recycled toner cartridges can make a significant impact on the local economy as well as the environment.”
Committed to the recycle proposition, Magnum offers to pick up toner cartridges from any company in the Puget Sound in an effort to reduce the landfill waste and reduce carbon emissions.
Magnum invites organizations to visit our website to see how much they could be helping the environment. The Carbon Footprint Calculator is available on the home page of the Magnum Print Solutions website at www.magnumlaser.com.
