In 2013 Magnum brand toner users and participants of Magnum’s Recycling Program made significant progress in environmental savings and reducing landfill waste. Magnum Print Solutions, the largest toner remanufacturer in the Northwest, has redesigned the toner cartridge manufacturing process, optimizing packaging design and recycling efforts to minimize waste and maximize component reuse.

With over 350 million toner cartridges discarded in landfills every year, Magnum’s process of reuse is significant. “The Magnum toner cartridge shell can be reused up to 12 times,” according to Steve Seavecki, Owner and President of Magnum. “By choosing a locally remanufactured cartridge that stays in the US, companies can make a real environmental impact.”

To track the impact, Magnum created an online application - ‘Carbon Calculator’ which lists the environmental savings of each element of a toner cartridge including metal, oil, trees, water and greenhouse gases.

The Magnum Recycling Program recycles used toner cartridges from businesses throughout the Puget Sound. Magnum provides containers for used cartridges and works with the business to arrange pickup. Participating businesses educate their employees about the impact, and designate areas for the cartridge containers. Companies enrolled in this program include the Fred Hutchinson Research Center, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance as well as locally owned office supply distributors Keeney’s and Chuckals.
