- Because of the short lifespan of desktop printers, it is essential that they be recycled so as to not overly saturate the standard waste stream.
- Desktop printers make up a portion of the 12.8 million tons of small equipment e-waste generated in 2014.
- The plastics that make up printers may contain fire-retardant plastics that could pose a health issue to humans.
- Valuable resources in the cords and circuit boards of printers such as copper can be salvaged when recycled.
- Recycling the printer cartridges is just as important as recycling the printer.
