Join us in our mission to create a more sustainable world for all.

 0% Corrugate / Cardboard Waste

One key initiative is our commitment to achieving 0% corrugate/cardboard waste. Any corrugated/cardboard material that cannot be re-purposed is stored on site and then hauled away by Sonoco Recycling for proper recycling and re-purposing. Between June 2023 and February 2024, we were able to recycle 31,860 lbs. of corrugated/cardboard material, showcasing our dedication to reducing waste.

Void Fill Collection

We also prioritize void fill collection and re-purposing in our operations. Void fill products recovered through inbound operations are collected and re-used in our outbound shipments. Additionally, our branch offices collect void fill products and send them to our Distribution Center for repurposing through outbound shipments.

Green Shipping Practices

Systel has optimized our shipping practices to minimize our environmental footprint. We use banded shipments to eliminate the need for void fill and corrugated boxes whenever possible, reducing waste and promoting sustainability.

Recyclable Waste Sorting and Processing

We have dedicated processes and personnel in place to sort and process recyclable waste generated by our industry. Instead of contributing to landfills, we break down components into recyclable states, such as separating consumed parts into plastic and metal sections.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

At Systel, sustainability isn't just a statement—it's a core commitment that drives every part of our organization. We view responsible environmental stewardship as a privilege and duty, essential for the planet and future generations. By embedding sustainable practices into every facet of our operations, from resource management to client solutions, we aim for holistic impact. Our dedication goes beyond reducing our ecological footprint; we strive to lead positive industry change. This deep-rooted commitment inspires continuous improvement and innovation for a greener future.

Our Cartridge Recycling Program


Join the eco-friendly revolution with Systel's Print Cartridge Program, where we tackle waste and carbon emissions head-on by recycling used cartridges from all our authorized manufacturer partners.

Unlike many direct manufacturer programs that only accept their own products, our all-in-one recycling solution allows for easy disposal of various cartridges, image, and fuser units in a single box. Join our effort to divert these long-lasting waste products from landfills at no cost to you, with free recycling and shipping for all volumes.

To return empty cartridges, place them in the original boxes and place into the Systel recycle box. For multiple box returns, call your local Systel branch to coordinate a pick-up.  To get started or order additional recycling boxes, call 1.800.849.1500 or email

Did you know that toner bottles can be disposed of in a regular recycling receptacle?  It’s true!  Thank you for using our recycling program and helping us protect the environment.
