ARMOR collects used laser and inkjet cartridges from premises of customers who have opted for the OWA solution*.
When choosing an OWA cartridge, the buyer is also acquiring a guarantee that, when no longer needed, it will be collected, sorted, recycled or remanufactured, and reintroduced into the industrial system.
Collection is simply the start of a new chapter - this is definitely not the end for your cartridge!
After collection, the used cartridges are sorted:
OWA is committed: every cartridge will be reused in two ways, following a full and unique materials recycling process.
Under the OWA programme, each collection carton is identified as belonging to the final user by a bar-coded label, ensuring total traceability during the entire cartridge-processing procedure. The computerized monitoring process enables us to establish customized data for the Materials Audit for each collection point !
Manage the lifecycle of your cartridges thanks to your custom collection procedure!
