A programme that works!

More than just a good-willed eco initiative, the Lexmark Cartridge Collection Programme (LCCP) is a genuine action-based programme that yields solid, quantifiable results. And because it’s free of charge to our partners and customers, it allows everyone to be part of the positive change.

With your help, here’s what we’ve been accomplishing…


  Lexmark customers return up to 50% of the total toner cartridges shipped to them

  Since 1996, Lexmark has reused over 19 million kilogrammes of recovered cartridge material by converting millions of used toner cartridges into Lexmark-certified reconditioned toner cartridges.

  Last year, approximately 32% of the cartridge materials by weight returned to Lexmark were reused. Our goal is to reach 50% by 2018.

  Thanks to LCCP, our cartridges contain up to 28% recycled plastic content (PCR).

  LCCP is currently available in over 60 countries, covering 90% of our global market.


No cartridge left behind

If a returned cartridge is not a good candidate for reconditioning, it is deconstructed in such a way to maximize the materials recovered for use in secondary products. As a result, we’re able to materially recycle or reuse 100% of the reclaimed plastic.
