Cartridge waste classification

We have undertaken a characterisation of Lexmark branded empty toner cartridges based upon the assessment of their hazardous properties.  The toner contained in Lexmark print cartridges are not classified as dangerous as per applicable EU Directives and amendments.

Lexmark has classified its toner cartridges as waste type 16 02 ie waste from electrical and electronic equipment. Indeed, the cartridge is a printer component that cannot work without a printer. Also, waste toner cartridges can be considered as waste from electric and electronic equipment (WEEE) since the “open scope” of the WEEE Directive n° 2012/19/EU has become effective on 15 August 2018.

As a result, and with reference to the applicable nomenclature, Lexmark classifies its toner cartridges with waste code 16 02 16 (“components removed from discarded equipment other than those mentioned in 16 02 15”) for the purpose of transboundary shipments of waste and waste management activities within the European Union.
