SHARP Toner Recycling Program

Sharp Electronics of Canada Ltd. is committed to conduct business operations and activities in a manner that is protective of human health and the environment.

Four Simple Steps

Step 1.  Use only the packaging from your new toner; do not use any other packaging. Place used toner cartridge in the carton and seal with packing tape.

Step 2.  Please return when possible, eight to ten empty toner cartridges per shipping label to help conserve resources, reduce energy use and shipping costs.  Place them in a used cardboard carton and seal, or you may also bundle multiple individual cartridge boxes together securely with tape. When bundling multiple cartridge boxes, please make sure you have no more than two rows of four cartridge boxes across.

Step 3.  Click on the following link Prepaid Shipping Label to be re-directed to the Canada Post website. Complete the contact information and click “continue” to print the shipping label. Please affix the label to the top of the carton.

Step 4.  If you already have a Commercial pick-up agreement with Canada Post, simply include the above cartons with your daily outbound items. Otherwise, drop off the cartons at your nearest postal outlet.

Samsung Toner Recycling Program


The Samsung Take-Back and Recycle programme (S.T.A.R.) - a no-cost, environmentally-conscious way to return used toner cartridges for recycling.

Operating on a Zero Landfill policy, the S.T.A.R. programme ensures that 100% of returned cartridges are recycled, including all shipping materials. Toner cartridges are recycled into useable materials, which then go back into the raw materials marketplace to become a range of new products. Through this process, the maximum value from each returned cartridge is obtained at the smallest environmental cost. Samsung is also researching ways to use those same raw materials in the production of new cartridges - an innovation that would further reduce negative impact on the environment.

At Samsung Canada we're committed to providing Canadians with greener options - we hope you'll join us in our efforts toward a greener planet.

For Business Customers

Specially marked Samsung new toner cartridge boxes contain two red FedEx return labels - one for the U.S. and one for Canada. The S.T.A.R. FedEx return option is available to Samsung business customers only; consumer and personal printer users should use the Canada Post drop-off return option. Please choose the appropriate label for use in Canada (Canadian returns ship to Ontario.) If you do not have a label, you may obtain one from Samsung Canada customer service 1-800-SAMSUNG (726-7864) or use the Canada Post drop-off return option.

Bulk Collection Program For Corporate Consumers

Corporate Customers whose business generates several empty toner cartridges per month should consider the S.T.A.R. Bulk Collection Program. This program allows participants to simply deposit empty cartridges into a bulk collection box, rather than packaging and returning one cartridge at a time. Once the box is full, return the cartridges for recycling by following the shipping directions printed on the box.

1) Order box # CB-GPTRB-S
2) Call 1-866-332-4160 and select the Ordering Collection Box option from the menu - be prepared to provide your contact name and company information, address, department/location, and a contact telephone number.
3) Or, email [email protected], request box # CB-GPTRB-S and include your contact name and company information, address, department/location, and a contact telephone number. If you require more than one box, please include that information in your request.

S.T.A.R. Bulk Collection Recycling Instructions:

1) Close the box securely; use tape designed for shipping (strong tape 2 inches (5cm) or more in width). Do not use masking tape, duct tape, cello tape or paper over-wrap.
2) Mark your contact information including your name, company name, address, department/location and a contact telephone number on the box.
3) Do not cover or mask the pre-addressed Courier Return Service label on the top flap.
