We care about the Environment

We are unrelenting in our commitment to ensure that our impact on the environment is minimal, and we don’t just talk about reducing our carbon footprint, we have actually taken steps to ensure that we do.

“Over the last few years, we have drastically reduced the size of our blister packaging by nearly 50%. Our inkjet packaging is now made from R-PET material which is a recycled plastic.” - Jet Tec Commercial Manager

More ink. Less waste

Our recycling process ensures that each cartridge we are able to recycle is then filled to the maximum capacity with high quality ink. In many cases we are able to offer extra ink in our recycled cartridges compared to the original. This benefits the consumer and the environment, as the cartridge is not only recycled but contains extra ink, therefore printing for longer.

Recycling schemes

Jet Tec’s remanufactured cartridges are produced using cartridges collected through our recycling schemes. The cartridges go through our strict inspection process to verify that they are suitable for remanufacturing. The cartridges are then cleaned with our specially formulated cleaning solution to remove all the residual ink. Once this is complete, the cartridges are refilled, print tested and packaged.

Through our partnership with TRF we are able to re-use many cartridges which may otherwise being landfilled, be sure to check our range of Canon, Dell, Epson, Hewlett Packard and Lexmark remanufactured cartridges.

Recyclable packaging

Jet Tec are fully committed to reducing landfill with an overall objective of 0%.

The Jet Tec blister packaging is produced from up to 80% recycled plastic. We have reduced our packaging further by printing information directly onto the compatible cartridges, eliminating the need for a paper label.

The packaging depths are in line with the size of individual cartridges ensuring the minimum amount of packaging is used Learn more...
