The environment is extremely important to us here at North West Printer Solutions, we like to work closely with our customers and industry contacts to ensure we're doing all we can to improve our and your carbon footprint.

We offer a number of solutions to help you become a little "greener"...


It takes approximately 3 litres of oil and 4 litres of petroleum to produce a single toner cartridge.

97% of a typical cartridge is reusable and can be remanufactured effectively 4-5 times.

In 2008, 1.9 billion printer cartridges were used worldwide, if stacked end to end this would stretch to 140,000 miles or 5.5 times around the world.

Not only do we conserve valuable fuels, but preventing new cartridges being made also saves energy and reduces the amount of empties entering landfill.

In the UK alone, 45 million printer cartridges end up in landfill each year, a single cartridge can take up to 500 years to fully decompose.

Switching to remanufactured cartridges can improve your carbon footprint by up to 60%.

What About Compatibles?

Compatibles are produced from scratch, usually in a bid to make a cheaper alternative to the original and are therefore no greener than buying a new toner cartridge.


The number of cartridges entering UK landfill is a huge issue, that's why we like to reuse and recycle as much as possibel.

Our customers in the North West benefit from free collection and recycling of their empties.
