In January 2020, the collections part of the Clover business, Clover Environmental Solutions (CES) was centralised at our facility in Germany - Clover Germany Gmbh. This integration of CES into Clover Imaging Group (CIG), established the Collecture brand as Clover’s empty collection program across EMEA, and our German facility in Etteheim as a WEEE certified First Treatment facility.
This centralisation of the Clover businesses was a logical one. CIG has grown into the largest remanufacturer of printer cartridges globally with manufacturing facilities in United States, Mexico, Asia, and Europe (Serbia). With a business model centered around sustainable innovation, Clover’s high quality, environmentally friendly remanufactured cartridges enable organisations to lower their printing costs while reducing their environmental impact. The first step in that process of sustainability is collecting the empty cartridge. In addition to this, the empty cartridge forms the beginning of our circular economic process, which is centered around the concept of re-use, the highest form of environmental sustainability.
Clover presents an opportunity for you to write your own sustainability story – return your empties for re-use and purchase your finished toner cartridges as remanufactured, eco friendly products that perform on par with the OEM but for a fraction of the cost.
Since 2009, Clover has collected over 436 million cartridges and diverted 206 million KG of material from landfills1.
