Lexmark has launched the Lexmark Cartridge Collection Programme (LCCP) app.
It supports the company’s LCCP recycling initiative that, since 1991, has provided free return methods for printer cartridges to enable the reuse or recycling of components.
The mobile device app is available for Android and iOS platforms. Once registered, customers use it to order recycling containers for their premises and to scan a QR code to request a free collection.
Users will be able to reduce the request time for ordering a collection or requesting additional containers from an average of six minutes to one minute. The app is expected to drive conversion of existing web customers as well as to encourage new LCCP registrations.
Danny Molhoek, managing director and country general manager UK/Ireland at Lexmark, said: “By improving our customers’ recycling process through the introduction of our LCCP app, we can create tangible benefits for businesses, customers and the environment.”
Its Ecobox, a smaller format, postage paid recycling container targeted at small-to-medium sized enterprises, is also available to order through the app.
The Ecobox allows businesses to return several cartridges at once through the post for free. Once they have been received, Lexmark will provide updates on each business’s contribution to the circular economy by providing recycling figures through its Eco Reports.
