If we bought a new car every time we ran out of fuel, the planet would be dead already ... and we’d be broke!
And if we recycled instead of reusing or refurbishing our printer cartridges whenever they were empty, the same thing would happen... it would just take a little bit longer.
Before you drop your cartridge into a box for recycling, let us refurbish for resale and we can keep this planet in better shape for longer... and save people dollars (a lot of them) on new cartridges.
Australian Laser Charge is a specialist remanufacturer and retailer of toner cartridges here in Hobart, Tasmania and actively promotes and endorses the triple bottom line philosophy of balancing the relationship between economic, social & environmental factors.
ALC’s policy of reuse in preference to recycling is in line with the recognised waste management hierarchy now used as best practice throughout the world.
If a cartridge can be successfully refurbished - reused in fact… it will be. If it can’t, we will ensure it is recycled in an environmentally responsible way.
All packaging materials are either reused or recycled locally in Hobart.
Waste avoidance is the most important feature of waste management. ALC is committed to helping Tasmania's business community achieve social, environmental and economic advantages.
We try to build public awareness of the

We practice what we preach, now using 100% post-consumer recycled paper.
Our aim is to stem the flow of printer cartridges sent to landfill, millions annually throughout the world.
