Sustainable thinking

At the Ray Morgan Company, we believe that we are responsible to the communities and the environment in which we live and work. We partner with companies that share a Green Earth vision, such as our primary partner Canon’s philosophy of Kyosei—living and working together for the common good.

As our customer, you’ll enjoy our complimentary Zero Landfill Cartridge Recycling services so you can save money and the environment with our exclusive greener print strategies.

As part of our philosophy, we have implemented long-term and eco-friendly initiatives and practices throughout the company and in our daily operations. Environmentally friendly actions don’t have to be large to have an impact. Consistently reducing the amount of energy, water, and paper our businesses use on a daily basis can reduce avoidable waste and expense.

Did you know?

  • 100 lbs is the amount of waste a typical laser printer creates in one year
  • 70% is the percentage of used cartridges that go directly into trash cans and are not recycled
  • 1,000 years is the amount of time it takes for a print cartridge to decompose in a landfill site

Our Complimentary Zero Landfill Cartridge Recycling Program

Rather than burn, export or dispose of unwanted end of life components into landfill sites, the Zero Landfill methodology leverages exclusive technology and world class engineers to extend and intensify the typical recycling process. This ensures 100% of all cartridge components are properly extracted to be reused and avoid landfill.

If you’re unsure of the true environmental impact of your current cartridge recycling process, let us introduce you to our exclusive Zero Landfill program – contact us today!

Here’s what we’ve accomplished in our own office!

At RMC, our Go Green initiatives are practiced across the board in all 16 of our branches:

  • Exclusively Powered by Solar: As of February 1, 2012, RMC Headquarters in Chico, California has been powered exclusively by solar panels. There are many advantages to going solar, a few of those benefits are: far less burning of fossil fuels, produces clean energy resulting in drastic reductions in air pollution, tons of carbon dioxide emissions reduced, promotes energy independence and reduces the need for more power plants for residential applications.

See RMC Solar Usage Page

  • Reusable Mugs – Over 16 billion paper cups are used each year in the U.S. We use re-usable mugs for our customers and all employees are encouraged to bring their own coffee mug to work.
  • Paper Recycling Program – One ton of recycled paper uses: 64% less energy, 50% less water, 74% less air pollution, and saves 17 trees. We have designated recycling bins for paper used in daily office operation and for paper used in testing our equipment.
  • Toner Recycling Program – Over three hundred million ink and toner cartridges are thrown away every year in America alone. Contact your account representative today to find out about toner recycling programs in your area.
