In 1990, Canon became the first company to collect and recycle used copier toner cartridges. With the cooperation of our customers, Canon has collected more than 444,000 tons around the world.
Unlike Canon's all-in-one cartridges, toner containers are made mainly of plastic material making them suitable for local recycling and local energy recovery in many areas of the country. When local recycling is utilized, the environmental impact associated with the transportation of containers is reduced.
If local recycling or energy recovery is not available in your area, Canon asks that customers ship them to the address below. Both cartridges and containers can be shipped together.
