Collection service

Even today, the vast majority of used printer cartridges are thrown in the bin, along with industrial or household waste. By having your cartridges collected, you are supporting sustainable development by promoting the recycling of waste materials.

The benefits of the collection programme are numerous :

  • Reducing disposal, incineration and landfill ;
  • Encouraging recycling and reusing waste ;
  • Helping protect the environment by participating in responsible management organized by an experienced operator.

As a remanufactured printing products vendor, ARMOR places collection at the centre of its production process. Without empty cartridges, it is impossible to supply new print consumables. Collection is therefore the spearhead of ARMOR’s work.
