Sustainable Business Practices
Mikan Corporation remanufactures and recycles toner cartridges for laser printers, fax machines, and copiers. Over 80% of their business is involved with recycling products. Most of the components they use in their products are reused or after use, recycled, including the outer shell, aluminum drums, cardboard, foam inserts, and packing material. A wide range of other materials are reused on site, including dishes, hand towels, folders, cleaning cloths, envelopes and boxes. An employee oversees the recycling program and ensures that recyclable materials are transported to various recycling drop-off centers. In addition, Mikan fills a two cubic yard recycle dumpster with cardboard, weekly. Mikan also closes the recycling loop by purchasing products made from recycled content materials and using recycled components in their products. Since 1990 Mikan has recycled over 2000 tons of toner cartridges, 85 tons of aluminum drums and 100 tons of cardboard. Mikan also works with organizations throughout SE Michigan to keep toner cartridges out of landfills.
