How does it work?
Office Buggy has partnered with an ISO 14001 certified third-party electronic recycling company, who specialize in recycling surplus and obsolete electronic equipment.
Step 1: Search and click on our request to recycle product, add to cart with your order and this will automatically send us a request to pick up your recycling items.
Or send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and request a recycling pick up. We will confirm with you an appointment where we will pick up your recycling items.
Step 2: Office Buggy will pick up your toners as requested on a Thursday. For logistic costs savings, we ask that you have a minimum of 5 empty toners for pick up as cost of transportation can be expensive. There is no guarantee that your items will be processed on the upcoming week as we have many pick ups to finalize. You are added to the list of appointments.
Step 3: Once we pick up your recycling items, we then take them to a facility where electronic waste products are safely disassembled manually. This simplified process allows for the maximum recovery of raw materials, ensures that hazardous materials are handled and disposed of safely.
Step 4: Basic materials, such as plastics, steel and circuitry are recovered and reused for other purposes. When specifically looking at toner cartridges, approximately 80-95% of used toners are able to be recycled for its plastic and small circuit boards. The remaining percentages, along with the collected toner powder is then sent for waste-to-energy recovery.
Beyond our daily operations, Office Buggy is contributing to environmental and social efforts within our community by volunteering with local initiatives.
Such efforts will help make positive contributions to the quality of life of where we operate our business, as well as help build team spirit within our company.
