Environment & Sustainability

In 2008, ROA’s familiar red rabbit logo became green to reflect our commitment to the environment. Every level of our business takes the environment into account; from the products we sell, to our in-office policies.

With Ricoh’s steps for sustainability and conservation, we are proud to say that the equipment we sell is made in “zero landfill” factories. All of the equipment is designed to promote efficiency in both recyclability and energy use. We also have an easy-to-use recycling program for used toner cartridges and toner bottles, which prevents the introduction of waste and chemicals to landfill sites. By recycling their cartridges, our customers help to keep plastic out of landfills and conserve the material and energy required to make new cartridges. With their help, we recover 90-100% of the cartridge’s total weight. Our zero-waste-generating recycling center is ISO 9002 certified for quality management and ISO 14001 certified for environmental management.

Each of our employees is given a recycle bin in addition to our communal bins to encourage recycling in our own offices. Even the cars our technicians drive to service machines were selected with fuel efficiency in mind to decrease our carbon footprint.

Together with our suppliers and customers, we strive to reduce the environmental impact of producing documents so that we can fulfill our collective responsibility as corporate citizens.

If you are interested in recycling your toner bottles, you can ship them directly to us or to our recycling facility, Metech Recycling.
