Printer recycling: IT-recycling takes care of disposal and recycling of printers, copy machines and multifunctionals

IT recycling takes care of everything for you. So from your workplace to the actual printer recycling and the environmental documentation afterwards: we arrange everything completely for you.
If you have written off printers – younger than 4 years – then we may be able to purchase them from you. More information about the purchase of printers can be found here. [Clearfix]
When printers come in for recycling, we first remove the toner. Here you will find more information about the removal and recycling of toners.
Laser printers contain plastics, a small amount of iron, stainless steel, brass, aluminum, a power supply and some low-quality printed circuit boards. Almost all raw materials that are used in a decommisioned laser printer can be used again. Therefore, written off printers are often exported as waste to third world countries where they are often recycled in an irresponsible manner.
Certification and legislation for printer recycling
Since July 2015, companies involved in the collection and processing of computer waste have been obliged to certify according to the WEEELABEX standard.
IT recycling is WEEELABEX certified. On the WEEELABEX website you can see which companies are now certified. A WEEELABEX certification is your guarantee that the recycling proceeds according to the highest standards and compliant to Netherlands law.
