Using remanufactured cartridges has significant economic and environmental advantages Using CARRCO remanufactured cartridges save money. Remanufactured cartridges are from 30 to 60 percent less expensive on a cost per copy basis. Using CARRCO remanufactured cartridges creates jobs. Manufacturing is done in the US. Purchasing remanufactured cartridges and recycling the empties are two ways to create jobs and strengthen the economy.
Using CARRCO remanufactured cartridges saves energy. Approximately three quarts of oil are burned in the production of a single new toner cartridge. A used cartridge can be reused up to four times, depending on the type and condition, saving up to three quarts of oil each time.
Using CARRCO remanufactured cartridges minimizes waste. Remanufactured cartridges decrease the amount of plastic, steel, aluminum and rubber sent to landfills and burned in incinerators. Toner cartridge recycling is one of the simplest ways to keep plastics and metals out of the landfills and expand your office’s recycling program Each year, millions of empty toner and inkjet cartridges used in laser printers, fax machines and copiers are thrown in the trash, destined for landfills and incinerators.
Buying remanufactured toner and inkjets and recycling empties is an easy way for companies to reduce the environmental impact of these discarded products.A typical toner cartridge weighs about three pounds. When broken down by material contend the average cartridge consists of about 40% plastic, 40% metal and small percentages of foam, rubber, paper and toner. About 97% of all these components combined are recyclable. That equates to about 120 million pounds of recyclable material that can be diverted from landfills each year with widespread use of cartridge recycling programs.
Remanufactured dealers inspect empty cartridges for damage and then replace worn parts thoroughly clean the reusable components and refill the cartridge with new toner. The whole cartridge recycling industry is in fact paying its respect to nature with work as CARRCO does with its products. What could be more ideal than recycling used toner cartridges from your printers and copiers?
These are just a few of the advantages of re-using and recycling your printer and toner cartridges:
- Re-using and recycling cartridges uses less energy and resources. It takes around 3 quarts of oil to make just one typical laser printer cartridge. This goes to show that every cartridge saved makes a big difference.
- Oil is a non-renewable material and re-using and recycling cartridges conserves oil.
- Printer cartridges also use aluminum and steel and these resources are also preserved when cartridges are re-used.
- Re-using and recycling cartridges keeps them out of landfills. Every year millions of tons of non-biodegradable printer and toner cartridges are dumped in landfills. These take up space in ever-shrinking landfill sites and can release toxins and gases into the air, soil and water. A cartridge can take decades to decompose in landfill.
When you do need to buy a new cartridge, the greenest choice is to buy remanufactured cartridges from CARRCO. These cartridges are less expensive than brand new ones and they come with a guarantee to work as well as new cartridges.
The most notable feature of MICR toner is that it’s magnetic. Printing with this magnetic toner enables your documents to be read or scanned by an array of different MICR devices; namely those located at your bank and local financial institutions. This reduces your risk of check fraud. If someone gets one of your preprinted checks, they can take it right to the bank and cash it. On the other hand, blank check stock makes check fraud more difficult. Using CARRCO MICR toner will help reduce your risk of being a victim of check fraud, which can cost you thousands of dollars.

Have you ever been printing and thought, “I just put this toner in, there is no way I am out of toner already. My toner says it prints 6 thousand pages?”
Every toner cartridge has a yield; this means this the amount of pages your toner will print up to. One of the important aspects to think of when choosing a printer or buying a replacement cartridge, is how much ink or toner that cartridge actually contains. Amount of ink or toner in cartridge is usually called cartridge yield or page yield.
When you turn to see what the yield of a cartridge is, you will see a number of pages the cartridge can print, right? Not exactly, printed pages differ from one another. One time you print a to-do list, next time it’s 10-page report.
For the purpose of cartridge yield measure, almost all printer manufacturers base their black ink/toner cartridge yields on 5% coverage. This means only 5% of the whole page is covered with ink or toner. 5% coverage implies basic type with no bold characters, no graphics and no pictures.
Now take the last two paragraphs above and place them on a Letter-sized sheet of paper. Congratulations! You have created a sample 5% coverage page.
