This page provides information on the accredited product stewardship scheme — Fuji Xerox Zero Landfill.
About the scheme
Accredited: 17 March 2015 for 7 years
Used equipment such as photocopiers and printers, and consumables are collected from customers and returned to Fuji Xerox warehouses in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland. An estimated 99.5 per cent of Fuji Xerox equipment is collected for reuse or recycling. Of this, over 80 per cent of equipment returns are through product trade-ins. This enables automatic collection of the used equipment by the scheme.
Once collected, equipment is assessed to determine whether it is fit for reuse or can be stripped for parts for reuse. If not reused, the equipment is sent to Sims E-recycling NZ Ltd for recycling. Packaging returned to Fuji Xerox New Zealand is recycled in Auckland. Material that is unable to be recycled in New Zealand is exported for recycling.
Fuji Xerox provides free recycling boxes to organisations participating in the scheme and collection boxes for toners and drums.

The scheme’s progress
The Fuji Xerox Zero Landfill Scheme aims to divert 99.5 per cent of all returned Fuji Xerox branded equipment, consumables and associated packaging from landfill through either reuse or recycling.
In 2015, Fuji Xerox exceeded its target of 99.5 per cent diversion of Fuji Xerox equipment. It successfully collected 688 tonnes of materials across New Zealand for recycling. This included 353 tonnes of toner cartridges and 315 tonnes of machines and parts.
We will share details of the scheme’s progress after we receive the first annual monitoring report in 2017.
