Ricoh Toner Cartridge / Container Recycling Program

RICOH® recommends that our customers utilize their local recycling resources whenever possible to reduce environmental impact and encourages recycling of end-of-life consumables and supplies. If local recycling is not available, our Toner Cartridge/Container/Maintenance Kit Return Program makes returning the items easy.

How to Return Your Used Ricoh, Savin, Lanier Consumer Replaceable Items

Ricoh Americas encourages recycling of all end-of-life equipment and supplies. Our Toner Cartridge / Container / Maintenance Kit Return Program makes it easy by simply re-using the replacement cartridge box as a return package.

Based upon the type of product(s) you possess, there are two different preparation methods used for returning consumable items:

  • For those cartridges that have UPS or FedEx shipping labels inside, remove the label from the box. Place the used cartridge in the box and tape the pre-paid shipping label to the outside of the package. Please utilize the return instructions on the form.
  • For those cartridges and maintenance kits that DO NOT have UPS or FedEX shipping labels inside the box, click the link below marked Prepaid Shipping Label and print out a pre-paid shipping label for return of the item. Once printed, tape the pre-paid shipping label to the outside of the package. Please utilize the return instructions on the form.
