Disposal and recycling of waste in Ukraine

Recycling Printers

Computer technology quickly and for a long time entered the life of every modern person. Today it is difficult to find a family in which there is no office equipment. However, each device has its own life, so the time comes when the owner has to replace it. Recycling printers will get rid of obsolete or unusable peripheral devices.

The relevance of recycling printers

A printer is a peripheral device that performs the function of outputting textual or graphical information from electronic media to physical media, paper or polymer film.

Peripheral printing equipment disposal services are ordered by the following customer categories:

  • manufacturers of office equipment;
  • service centers for the repair of computer equipment;
  • manufacturing companies;
  • educational establishments;
  • medical institutions;
  • utility services;
  • private individuals.

A printer that has lost its operability must be properly disposed of.

Printer disposal rules

A failed printer is disposed of by specialists in the laboratory. Electronic circuits and small nodes are assembled to the base of the PCB.

Three types of printers are in operation today:

  • matrix (printing is done with the needles of the information head);
  • laser (printing is carried out by applying powder toner at high temperature);
  • inkjet (printing is performed with water-soluble or pigment inks).

When disposing of printers, specialists first of all neutralize the contents of the cartridge in the laser apparatus and the print head or the continuous ink supply system - in the inkjet. Toner and inks, when released from the printer, pose a threat to human health and the environment. Plastic, metal and rubber fragments are sorted and sent for recycling.

Printing devices are taken out for disassembly by a special transport company, which has a license to perform a complex of recycling activities.

What is the threat of unutilized printers?

The organization of recycling printers has the following features that are associated with the characteristics of an inoperative machine:

  • masses;
  • dimensions;
  • the presence of precious metals;
  • availability of plastic rubberglass fragments.

Removal and disassembly of large-sized printers for components is carried out in the presence of a specialist recycling company. At the same time it is necessary to observe the correct sorting of spare parts that are not recyclable. They are placed in furnaces where, at high temperatures, their complete destruction occurs.

Metal parts are re-melted and can later be used to produce new devices for various purposes.

Non-working printers should not be thrown onto landfills designed for household waste. Consumables and electronic boards left in the apparatus will enter into chemical reactions with the environment. It carries a high risk of environmental conditions and public health.

Responsibility for ignoring the disposal of printers, who have served their time, lies with the top officials of public and private companies, as well as owners of devices. Violation of the law on environmental safety entails legal, civil and administrative liability. Computer equipment is marked with the release of serial numbers. Thanks to this, it is possible to find out by whom and when the devices were purchased. At the enterprises, the labor protection service monitors the journals in which records are kept of the disposal of non-working office equipment.

    It is hard to find reliable people now. We decided to work only with this company, because a waste disposal license is an indicator of trust. It was important for us to have a disposal license. It turned out that this is not the main thing. It's really convenient to work with you. We recommend ordering recycling here.

    We have been planning to write a review for a long time, but all hands did not reach. The choice was made on this company, since no one could dispose of such a volume of waste. It makes no sense to look for a bad contractor for waste disposal. All at the highest level! Thank you. Very satisfied with the work.
