FUJIFILM Business Innovation Philippines Corp. (FUJIFILM BI PH) is proud to announce its compliance with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Philippines’ implementation of the Extended Producer Responsibility Act (EPR).
The EPR Act aims to shift the responsibility for managing post-consumer products to the producers, including manufacturers, importers, and brand owners. This responsibility includes implementing systems that support the collection, reuse, recycling, and disposal of products at the end of their life cycle.
In response to the EPR mandate, FUJIFILM BI PH has taken measures to further promote recycling and proper waste disposal in their operations by taking on the responsibility of “Generator” for the collection of used multi-function printers, parts, and toner/drum cartridges from our customers around the Philippines to an accredited Treatment, Storage, and Disposal (TSD) Facility, with the aim of lessening the company’s contribution to wastes that end up in landfills.
Strengthening Product Reuse and Recycle
FUJIFILM BI PH makes it easier for companies to properly dispose of their M506 – Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) which includes printing equipment, used parts and toner cartridges, with a retrieval and recycling program at no extra cost to its customers.
Such items retrieved from customers will be processed by TSD and converted into new raw materials that can be used to make a variety of products.
FUJIFILM Business Innovation Philippines Corp. is committed to supporting the DENR and its efforts to promote sustainable development. The company will continue to improve its processes and work towards a more sustainable future.
