HOW TO RECYCLE A PHOTOCOPIER
Photocopiers are a staple of any modern workplace, and like other items, reach their end of life and will eventually need to be disposed of. Perhaps your photocopier no longer prints well, or has been replaced by a newer model. Modern photocopiers contain up to 60 different elements, a combination of valuable and hazardous items is generally present in every one. Photocopiers contain dangerous materials that will cause damage to the environment if not properly handled.
Each year, 50 million tons of e-waste is generated by people throwing out old electronics. By 2017, this number is expected to increase to 65 million tons. Throwing away e-waste does not guarantee that the e-waste will be treated in an acceptable way; in fact, in order to avoid higher costs and regulations, most e-waste is sent to developing countries where it is illegally disposed of. Burning photocopiers, in particular, releases lead, beryllium, and cadmium into the air. All of these have been shown to have adverse effects on human and animal health, and will seep into the ground, potentially poisoning the water and the earth.
So Why Recycle?
Even with such dangerous materials, various plastics, glass, steel, and aluminum can be recovered from old photocopiers by our experienced staff. By choosing photocopier recycling, these materials can be used in newer products and prevent toxins from leaking into the environment. BFR plastics, of which photocopiers are housed in, are often used for recycling into new electronic products. Printed Wiring Boards (PWBs) inside the photocopier contain various precious and valuable metals (such as gold and silver) that can be re-used in other electronic devices.
Recycling photocopiers also consumes far less energy than mining new resources for use in consumer electronics.
