Samsung's S.T.A.R. Program is a free service brought to you by Samsung for our business and consumer printer customers willing to take responsibility in helping to keep the environment clean. This environmentally conscious program safely reprocesses empty cartridges into their major usable component materials (plastics and resins, metals, non-metal materials, packaging cardboard, and other miscellaneous materials) and then makes those recovered materials available to the raw materials marketplace for reuse in new manufacturing for a range of products.
If you're a consumer, you can rest assured knowing that you're helping to make a positive impact on the environment. Follow these simple instructions to return an individual cartridge.
If you're a business customer, Samsung offers several free recycling service options to help make your business eco-friendly. Order a S.T.A.R. Office Collection Box or S.T.A.R. Return Label Pack.
The Samsung S.T.A.R. program's firm promise is that every returned empty cartridge is safely and responsibly recycled; unlike some printer manufacturers' return programs, they are never incinerated or sent to landfills. Any materials that cannot be recycled are treated and disposed of in a way that causes minimal environmental impact. This ensures that the maximum value from each returned cartridge is obtained at the smallest environmental cost. Samsung is also researching how to reuse the recycled materials in the production of new cartridges or other products.
Thank you for joining us in serving our community and our world.
Samsung's S.T.A.R. program offers several convenient return service options for business and commercial users who wish to send back their empty cartridges.
For volume users, we offer our S.T.A.R. Office Collection Box program. This free service provides easy-to-use collection and return containers that make recycling quick and convenient. Users simply deposit empty cartridges in the Collection Box. These boxes include pre-addressed, pre-paid shipping from anywhere in the U.S. via the U.S. Postal Service.
When an Office Collection Box is full, simply seal the Box and return it with your outgoing U.S. Postal Service business mail or schedule a free, next-day pick-up by a mail delivery carrier using this link: Click Here to Connect to USPS Carrier Pickup.
Note: S.T.A.R. Office Collection Boxes are intended for the return of empty toner cartridges and their packaging materials, or used imaging units and drums. Please DO NOT place any other products or materials for recycling in a S.T.A.R. Office Collection Box.
Samsung also offers pre-addressed, pre-paid, self-adhesive S.T.A.R. USPS SmartLabels® in packs of 5 (# RLP-STAR-5) for users wishing to use their own boxes to return cartridges. If using your own box for returns, please note these USPS Shipment Restrictions:
