Recycling of Lexmark printers at end of life

As a provider of printing solutions, including inkjet and laser printers, multifunction and all-in-one printers, Lexmark shares in the environmental responsibility for those products at the end-of-life. Lexmark offers our customers an environmentally responsible choice for recycling and reuse of their end-of-life printers.

Lexmark is pleased to partner with Sims Recycling Solutions to offer the citizens of New York recycling of their unwanted printers in support of the New York Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act. Information on how to recycle your end-of-life electronics covered by this act may be found here: http://oem.srsapp.com/StateInformation/default.aspx?oem=lexmark&statecode=ny

Removal of consumer data

Many types of electronic equipment, including printers, retain user information after they are unplugged and retired. You may also view instructions to remove such information if you are interested.

Our recycling partner follows stringent data security protocols and procedures for our customers' peace of mind. More information on Sims Recycling Solutions data security protocols may be found here: http://us.simsrecycling.com/key-issues

Overview of legislation

The NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act (PDF - 39 kb) (Article 27, Title 26 of the Environmental Conservation Law) was signed into law by the Governor on May 28, 2010. The law will ensure that every New Yorker will have the opportunity to recycle their electronic waste in an environmentally responsible manner. The law requires manufacturers to establish a system for the collection, handling, and recycling or reuse of electronic waste. Manufacturers of covered electronic equipment (CEE) are responsible for implementing and maintaining an acceptance program for the discarded electronic waste, with oversight by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
