Roland DGA has introduced a cartridge-recycling program for the company’s inkjet customers. The new program allows for recycling of cartridges for all Roland wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters across the United States, including eco-solvent, solvent, sublimation, UV, and aqueous models.

To take part in the program, Roland customers simply need to ship used cartridges directly to Roland’s headquarters in Irvine, California. Complete instructions, including packaging guidelines and shipping labels, can be downloaded from the Roland website (at rolanddga.com/recycle)

“We are excited to offer our inkjet customers the opportunity to decrease their shop’s environmental footprint and reduce waste,” says Rick Scrimger, vice president and general manager for Roland DGA. “The facility we have selected is state of the art and recycles over 99 percent of waste to save landfills. We encourage our customers to help protect our planet by participating in this easy, cost effective new program.”

A similar cartridge recycling program for Roland Canadian customers will be announced later this year. The new cartridge recycling program joins a host of Roland initiatives worldwide designed to decrease the environmental impact of its operations.
