ART_recycle1_200x230.jpgDO NOT

Throw cartridges and the valuable information they contain into the trash.

This will bring pollution to landfills and waterways, rather than bring value to your operation.

Recycle on your own

  • Continue to follow your current metal scrapping/recycle process for cartridges until Hypertherm’s “Return to Recycle” program is extended outside of the United States.

  • Collect used cartridges in your normal copper/brass recycling container.

  • Remember, cartridge consumables for Powermax SYNC® systems are 65% copper and 20% brass by weight, and classified as “Drink, Droid, or Drove” material. Be sure to discuss this with your scrap vendor to ensure you are fairly reimbursed!
