    worn pc(d)u's - waste procedure

    Hoi,
    Here in Belgium it seems that the pc(d)u's are no longer described as hazardous waste.
    That means that it can't be offered - for free - at the waste recycling center anymore.
    It seems that it is described as domestic waste and needs to be offered that way.
    I think it is than useful to dismantle the pc(d)u and sort out the waste from the recycle parts like metal and developer (toxic).
    Is this procedure in your country the same?
    By the way, Ricoh is collecting empty toners, but no worn pc(d)u's; maybe that is because there heavy and therefor to expensive to collect and transport?

    Re: worn pc(d)u's - waste procedure

    We use "ricoh return" program for every ricoh-related waste (fuser, toner, opc, drum units....)

    RICOH Smart Return

    So far we received no angry letter

    Edit: in FAQ (in my language) they refer to both "cartridges" and "consumables" - in my opinion PM parts are consumables.

    I know that Scandinaven countries are very environmentally conscious, I think that is good.
    I have asked Ricoh for this info, but they did not react.
    I Think i have to ask them again.

    Here in Spain the manufacturers jointly set up a platform for waste collection, required by the legislation on waste electronic equipment.

    Here in The U S of A, we just throw everything away! Into the lakes and rivers... out onto the streets and alleys... or burn them into the air we all breathe, because, well, we are Americans.

    "Idiot". "American". After traveling outside of the States for several years, I came to see that to many of The World's citizens, those terms are pretty much interchangeable. ("Bullies" is also a term that is used too.) I apologize if my facetiousness was lost on you, Slim but you are correct...indeed, all of us are not idiots.

    Oh, since we have the 'new arrivals' it is the same here: they make our country one big garbage dump place.
    Strength boy, change is coming
