Lexmark has been offering free and easy cartridge return methods since 1991. For years,
Lexmark has operated its own recycling center in Juarez, Mexico. Reusing all possible parts and
recycling any remaining plastics enables Lexmark to close its own loop. Approximately 25,000
empty toner cartridges are processed per day. In the last 11 years, Lexmark has been able to
incorporate more than 46 million pounds of material recovered through LCCP into the production
of laser cartridges.
The LCCP plant is a Responsible Recycling (R2) certified facility that safely recycles and
manages electronics based upon an accredited, third-party auditor. LCCP has achieved other
certifications such as ISO 14001 for environmental management, OHSAS 18001 for Occupational
Health and Safety and ISO 9001 for quality management. The 99,000 square-foot facility is also a
Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified building.
