At the Gordon Flesch Company, we’re committed to minimizing our carbon footprint, while helping you minimize yours.
From reselling and refurbishing used equipment to reducing energy consumption to recycling waste products, the Gordon Flesch Company is focused on doing our part to move toward a more sustainable future. Here’s how:
Toner Recycling Programs
Older models of equipment are sold to wholesalers, who refurbish and sell them to overseas markets. Equipment that cannot be sold is stripped for parts, and any remaining materials are shipped to a recycling center.
The Gordon Flesch Company has reduced energy usage in its offices by using energy-efficient equipment and installing new lighting in our 38,000-foot warehouse, which has cut our energy consumption in half.
The health and vitality of the communities in which we live and work is a strong longtime focus of the Gordon Flesch Company. That's why we will continue to seek out new and innovative ways to lessen our impact on the environment—and provide energy-effective, earth-friendly office product solutions that help our customers do the same.
If you use Canon equipment, you may be eligible to participate in their Toner Collection Program. According to Canon, over the course of 20 years of recycling, the program has reduced resource usage by a total of approximately 185,000 metric tons. This is equivalent to the material that would be required to build 90 brand new space shuttles.
Sharp has a similar program that allows users to recycle toner cartridges through prepaid return cartons and through partnerships with recycling centers nationwide.
