Reducing our waste and helping the environment

Each year over 6 million inkjet and laser cartridges are consumed in the UK and an estimated 50% of these are destined for landfill.

The ACS Recycling Programme aims to reduce this amount by delivering an ACS recycling bin, and replacing again when the bin is full. The free of charge service provides an easy opportunity for businesses nationwide to improve their sustainability and meet environmental regulations.

Companies can cut costs as well as protect their business in the long-term from a potential lack in resources by reducing their use of natural resources, better managing waste, and investing in sustainable opportunities.

At ACS we take our environmental impact very seriously. We have implemented a number of other actions to reduce as much as possible any negative effect that our business activities have on the environment. Some of these actions include recycling all of our waste, using energy saving lighting throughout our office, using a network of UK suppliers to reduce the number of miles that products travel to our customers, and we also buy all of our energy from a renewable energy provider. These are easy steps for any business to employ to become a sustainable business.
