At LCI We Value All of Our Relationships – Especially the One with Our Planet.

We’re serious about our commitment to the environment and the communities we serve.

It’s a major consideration for how we conduct our business and who we choose to partner with. LCI sustainability programs benefit everyone – today and into the future. With initiatives like our Zero Landfill Cartridge Recycling program we’re able to meet the needs of our customers today, while lowering their carbon footprint and maintaining valuable resources for tomorrow.

Green printing practices and strategies don’t need to be complex to be effective. By making a conscious and consistent effort to use less energy, paper, water and other resources, waste and costs can be easily reduced. Our business philosophy and solutions include a number of practices and eco-friendly options for day-to-day use, in addition to a number of long-term goals and initiatives.

The Numbers Tell the Story

17 percent of printed pages are never used or referenced
100 pounds of waste is typically produced annually by the average printer
70 percent of used print cartridges end up in landfills
1000 years

It takes 1000 years for a used print cartridge to decompose

Our Goal: Zero Cartridges To Landfills

Our Zero Landfill Program eliminates the needs to burn, export or send components of a used print cartridge to the landfill. Every empty cartridge that is accepted for remanufacturing must meet strict standards. Cartridges that don’t meet those standards are broken down and the raw materials are recycled and used to create other consumer products.

Revitalizing Cartridges Makes Sense.

Consider the fact that every day 600,000 toner cartridges in North America alone end up heading to landfills.

Here are a few examples of the sustainable success we've achieved in our own office:


Through each step of the process from acquisition to delivery, set-up and removal, our team is dedicated to maintaining the highest environmental standards. Our feature rich machines are designed to save paper, toner and energy all while reducing your carbon footprint and impact on the environment. Plus, they lower your costs. It’s a win-win!


Every ton of paper you recycle saves 17 trees and uses 50 percent less water, 64 percent less energy, and creates 74 percent less pollution. As part of our sustainability initiatives, paper recycling bins are placed throughout office work spaces, common areas and testing spaces.


We encourage employees and visitors to use reusable cups or mugs provided by LCI, or to bring their own. Did you know that every year 20 million trees are used to make 56 billion paper cups in the US which are ultimately thrown away? Reusable cups and mugs make sense and offer a huge positive environmental impact.


More that 300 million used ink and toner cartridges are thrown into landfills in the US each year. We recycle our used cartridges – do you? Contact an LCI Office Solutions team member to learn more about toner and ink cartridge recycling.
