Brad Roderick, executive vice president of InkCycle in Lenexa, Kansas, reviews the process of recycling ink and toner cartridges at InkCycle to help eliminate e-waste from landfills. grenkblog.com Roderick explains that the first steps include taking the toners apart to see what’s inside of them, replacing the critical wear components, cleaning out excess toner and getting them back to a state where they are ready for repair and refurbishment. Roderick discusses the final step of recycling an ink and toner cartridge after one is placed into a live printer and prints a series of pages to ensure that when it’s taken out of the box that the print performance at the end of the production process is up to the standards that will satisfy the consumer. InkCycle produces a recycled ink and toner cartridge called grenk. Grenk is designed to leave the smallest environmental footprint possible.
