When your copier or printer bites the dust or gets replaced with a new model, you may be wondering what to do with the old machine. Many people actually don't know that these types of machines contain materials that can pollute the earth, and incorrect disposal of copy machines and printers is incredibly hazardous to the environment. Read on to learn how to properly dispose of a copier or printer.Increasing by about 8 percent per year, electronic waste, or e-waste, is the fastest growing segment of the US waste stream. Contributing to the problem is the fact that less than 10 percent of electronics such as printers, copiers, and fax machines are recycled - the remaining 90 percent end up in incinerators or landfills where their harmful toxins can then cause harm to your health. Instead of allowing these chemicals (including mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium, and selenium) enter the air or water supply, consider these alternatives. Donate Your Old Copier or PrinterOne alternative to throwing out your old printer or copy machine is to donate it to a school, non-profit organization, or low-income community. This is an excellent option if the copier or printer is still in good working order and you are simply replacing it with a newer model. You will keep the copier/printer and all its toxins out of the landfill, and the organization you donate it to will surely appreciate it. Additionally, donating your used equipment to a school or non-profit organization can help you qualify you for tax deductions. Most non-profits will provide a donation receipt for tax purposes if you request it (but keep a record of what you donated and to whom just in case).Check Recycles.org for a full list of schools, organizations, and non-profit businesses that accept donations of electronics.Manufacturer Take-BackIf donating your copiers or printers isn't an option, check with the manufacturer of the machine. Many companies now have take-back programs in place for recycling e-waste such as non-working copiers and printers. This option not only keeps the hazardous materials from your machines out of the landfill, but it allows the manufacturer to reuse many resources from the machine such as raw materials and heavy metals.Find a Licensed Disposal Facility Last but not least is the option of finding a government licensed electronics disposal facility. These companies will dispose of your copier machine, printer, or fax machine in an environmentally safe way that will meet your legal obligations and also achieve the maximum environmental benefit of disposal. Generally a disposal facility will take printers or copy machines such as Canon copy machinesor Toshiba copy machines and dismantle them into their composite materials which can then be recycled and entered back into the manufacturing process, thereby helping the environment and preserving natural resources.Whatever option you choose, just remember to recycle or refurbish your copy machine or printer - don't let it end up in the landfill!

Copier Lingo, Jargon and Keywords Explained

When choosing a printer the first choice will be whether to buy a laser printer or an inkjet printer. The following summarize the main advantages and disadvantages of inkjet and laser printers.Inkjet PrintersInkjet printers works by propelling droplets of ink onto the paper. The ink is released from small removable cartridges and if it is a colour inkjet printer there will normally be a black cartridge and three different coloured cartridges. You can either replace the whole cartridge or refill the cartridges with a special refill kit. Advantages Inkjet printers are considerably cheaper to buy. High end printers are capable of producing good quality images when used with special paper. Most models are relatively light weight and compact so they don't take up too much space on the desk. Disadvantages Due to the cost of ink, running an inkjet printer over time is a more expensive than a laser printer. Prints emerge from the printer slightly wet and may need time to dry. Printing is slower and therefore inkjets aren't designed for high volume printing. Laser PrintersThis printer incorporates a laser beam as a part of the image processing. Rather than using ink a laser printer uses toner, a dry plastic powder combined with carbon black or colouring agents. The consumable a part of the printer is encased in a cartridge which needs to be replaced from time to time.Advantages Laser prints are generally very high and very accurate. For high volume printing laser printers are considerably cheaper to run. Printing is fast so they can handle large volumes. Due to the technology used prints from a laser printer emerge from the printer dry to the touch. Disadvantages Buying a laser printer can be expensive when compared to an inkjet. Colour laser printers are significantly more expensive than a colour inkjet. Laser printers are larger and heavier as they need to contain the imaging drum and laser technology.

Cleaning a laser printer, fax, or copier of laser toner can be easy, provided you know what you're doing and use the right tools. This article will share with you some simple tips to help you clean your laser printers of laser toner like a pro.A word to the wise: Before I begin, I'd like to stress that this article is intended only to assist you with basic cleaning of the laser toner from your laser printer. If you're unsure of your ability to perform any sort of printer maintenance, or if performing such maintenance will void the printer's warranty, you should contact a qualified service professional.Some safety issues: Though laser printers come in various shapes and sizes, they all use laser toner (that messy black powder). While cleaning your laser printer, the last thing you want is to have laser toner in your lungs or on your skin. The tips provided in this article should help reduce the chance of you being bathed in laser toner while cleaning your printer.Laser toner particles are so fine that they can take more than fifteen minutes to settle if they become airborne make that hours if you have fans or air- conditioners circulating them through an office. To avoid inhaling laser toner particles, try to keep the air in the cleaning area stable and leave the printer area for several minutes after cleaning. When you return, move slowly, open all windows, and begin vacuuming any laser toner from the floor, tabletops, and so forth.Another dangerous area common to all laser printers is the fuser-roller compartment. The fuser roller gets extremely hot during the printing process and is usually covered for safety. Burns can occur, however, if you accidentally uncover and touch the roller. I recommend that you leave your printer off for at least one hour before cleaning it of laser toner. As with all electrical equipment, make sure that the power cable is unplugged before you begin any work.Here are the basic tools you need to clean the laser toner from the laser printer:-Vacuum-Compressed can of air-Wash cloth-Mask-Cotton Swabs-Isopropyl Alcohol (99 percent pure)-Paint Brush (soft bristle, about a half-inch wide)-Latex gloves (optional)Compressed air:You can buy this in any department store or office supply store. Ranges in price from $3.00 to $10.00 per 10 oz. bottle. Use adequate ventilation please.Mask:You'll want to prevent laser toner particles from entering your throat and lungs. While laser toner inhalation has not been proven to cause serious health problems, respiratory tract irritation can occur with exposure to large amounts of laser toner dust. Laser toner can also contain potentially hazardous compounds, such as styrene, ethyl benzene, and xylene isomers. Use a mask that filters both odors and fine particles, such as the ones used for painting and sanding. You can usually find these at local hardware stores.Cotton swabs:You can use the regular cotton swabs found in your local drugstore or those made especially for cleaning printers. The printer swabs come with six-inch-long sticks.Isopropyl alcohol:Do not use regular rubbing alcohol. Either use chemicals that are specifically designed to clean the heads of VCRs, cassette tapes, tape drives, and the like or use 99 percent pure isopropyl alcohol, which evaporates without leaving any residue.Paint brush (soft bristle, about a half-inch wide): This is used to brush out toner from tight crevices. Since bristles may fall out during the cleaning process, pull out any loose ones before you use the brush. I don't recommend using toothbrushes.Latex gloves (optional):These must fit tightly on your hands since you want to maintain skin sensitivity. Drugstores usually sell them in boxes of 100. This is to keep your hands clean but if you don't have them you can just wash up with soap and water afterwards.Okay, let's begin cleaning that laser printer of the laser toner. Now that you have the tools, it's time to unplug the laser printer, let it sit for one hour, and then follow the steps below:1. Put on your mask and latex gloves if you have them.2. Open the printer and gently remove the laser toner cartridge or laser toner bottle.3. Use your wash cloth and wipe the laser toner cartridge. Place the laser toner cartridge aside.4. Use your vacuum to remove spilled laser toner from within the printer's internal compartment. Try to prevent the vacuum's nozzle from actually touching any of the printer's internal surfaces.5. Use your paintbrush to remove laser toner from any crevices. Use gentle motions and vacuum as necessary. 6. Many laser printers use very fine wires (called 'corona wires') that are often exposed. If your printer has such wires, take care to avoid vacuuming or brushing them. Breaking a corona wire can be a costly mistake. Dip a cotton swab into isopropyl alcohol and gently run it along the length of the wire. Also be sure to clean the underside of the wires. Never apply pressure.7.Reinsert the laser toner cartridge, close the printer, reconnect the power cord, and you are done.Avoid using the wash cloth inside the printer. Though you can use the wash cloth to clean the inside, I do not recommend it. There are many sharp points that can tear the cloth's fiber and leave loose strands inside the printer.OEM vs. Remanufactured Laser Toner Cartridges Although many people buy OEM Name Brand laser toner cartridges, little do they know, they really are remanufactured! Can you believe it? Seriously folks, why spend many more dollars on OEM's when you can get THE SAME quality laser toner cartridges for half or less than half the price? When you buy an OEM laser toner cartridge, just look at the box! It says "Made of new and recycled materials". The OEM companies want you to send your laser toner cartridge back to them , so they can remanufacture it , and sell it back to you as new! Buying remanufactured laser toner cartridges saves the environment. Millions of laser toner cartridges get dumped in landfills every year. So, please, save the environment,and save your money!Happy Cleaning!
