Police raid printer cartridge business

printer cartridge police raidArizona — Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies raided Lasermasters Thursday morning in the ending of a six-month investigation that started with a tip to the MCSO immigration hotline from one of the employee’s.

Police converged on Lasermasters location shortly after 8 a.m.

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, investigators had information that 35 people working at Lasermasters, a company that supplies printer cartridges and are allegedly allowing undocumented immigrants who used fake documents to get their jobs.

MCSO said its deputies, armed with search warrants, went to the Lasermasters location to look for employee files and records on those 35 people. By the end of performance, 24 Lasermasters employees had been arrested, all suspected of being in the country illegally and engaging in identity theft, which is a class 4 felony.

MCSO Det. Aaron Douglas said the investigation was part of a potential employer-sanctions case. Sheriff Joe Arpaio said this operation — the 32nd of its kind — had zero to do with Arizona’s new immigration law, although he does believe the law will be beneficial as his office works these kinds of cases in the future.

One of the many employee’s that was present when the raid went down at Lasermasters spoke to 3TV’s Javier Soto saying deputies busted into the building, yelling “Where are the rats hiding?”

Sheriff Joe Arpaio said his deputies did their jobs properly executing the operation “very professionally.”

“We went in very, very professionally. No guns were ever drawn, even though 10 people were escaping or in the process of escaping. We still did not draw our guns,” Sheriff Arpaio said. “We know what we did, and the people inside know what we did.

“The bottom line is we came in here, enforcing the laws, executing search warrants, and you’re always going to have some critics make up stories,” he continued.

The employee who talked to Javier Soto said he is a Hispanic American who has blond hair and blue eyes. The man said at no point did the deputies try to steer him about his immigration status.

At one point a spectator who had become very emotional revealed that her husband was one of the arrested. She actually had to be restrained as she tried to get to him. She said that this would tear her family apart.

According to MCSO, the previous operations like this morning’s raid have resulted in 362 undocumented immigrants being arrested. Of those, 231 were suspected of identity theft, which is a class 4 felony.

Toner Cartridge recycling reveals real benefits

toner cartridge recyclingWhile the world stands still and waits for a leader, one printer company is taking the bull by the horns. After years of sitting back and watching consumers discard their used products in the trash one manufacturer has made a statement.  Lexmark has implemented a plan of action that takes recycling to a new level.

In celebration of Earth Day, today Lexmark released the findings of a Life Cycle Assessment that looked into the environmental impact of discarded toner cartridges. Finding that sending a used toner cartridge back to Lexmark for recycling, as opposed to discarding it in the trash, reduces the overall carbon footprint of those toner cartridges by up to 60 percent.

Not only does discarding old printer cartridges in the trash create an astoundingly large landfill with toxic waste, but did you know that it takes 2.5 quarts of oil to produce the petroleum product that creates the plastic shell of a printer cartridge. By reducing the amount of waste that goes into the landfill and reusing the old shells, you can reduce the amount of oil that is consumed day-after-day.

Toner Cartridge Recycling made easy

Lexmark runs free collection programs for its ink and toner cartridges. On Lexmark’s website, you can request a prepaid return envelope for printer cartridges or print a return label for multiple toner cartridges (remember to save the box it came in) to send them back to Lexmark for recycling. Lexmark pledges that 100% of the printer cartridges it collects are either reused or remanufactured for recycling.

Another break in Lexmark’s corporate policy, while being one of the largest manufacturer’s of printers and printer cartridges, Lexmark urges customers to print less. “They have made it a priority to train its customers on what steps they can take to implement responsible printing practices, such as printing less and recycling, to reduce the negative impact to the environment,” said Marty Canning, Lexmark vice president and president of its Printing Solutions and Services section. They suggest customers print only what they need, use double-sided prints as much as possible, and employ digital document processes and paper-less features such as scan-to-email to share documents. The company also recommends purchasing the highest-yield printer cartridges, which helps cut costs and reduce waste.

Another benefit of recycling toner cartridges is the cost advantage. Typically a recycled toner cartridge costs less to manufacture and that savings is passed on to the consumer. So the next time your in the market for a printer cartridge, Check with your local supplier and try and take advantage of going green. Your children and grandchildren will thank you for it when their not too busy texting.

No teacher left without a toner cartridge

toner cartridge teacherWhile many of us are facing tough cut backs, we fail to remember the most important people in our children’s lives. Often overlooked, under paid and certainly unappreciated is your child’s teacher. They don’t complain unless little Johnny has been bad. Never revealing budget restraints or loss of financial support. We only care when our child tends to make us look like were not doing our job as a parent.

Teacher Appreciation Week is easy, when times are good: The java mug. The gift certificate. And of course, the apple.

But when times are bad, it is much more harder and sometimes the best way to say, “Thanks for all you’ve done for my child” is with… a card or even better and much more appreciated is a toner cartridge, or maybe some dustless chalk.

Please send a Toner Cartridge to School

Budget cuts have hit one Chesapeake elementary school hard enough that for teacher appreciation week this week, the Parent Teacher Association sent home a note saying teachers had asked parents to please give them the gift of school supplies. The wish lists included printer cartridges, toner cartridges, Ziploc bags, dry-erase markers, and toys for recess.

“That does look a little sad,” said Kim Parker, vice president of the Western Branch Intermediate PTA. “But most of us room mothers, we’re still planning to do something nice for the teacher themselves, too.”

During these difficult times, little things often make a big difference. When it comes to our children there isn’t anything we wouldn’t do. But the feeling of helplessness that these teachers must feel when our school system seems to tie their hands with budget cuts is heart breaking. The next time you chat with your child’s teacher please ask them if there is anything that you a interested parent could provide for his or her class.

You may want to let the teacher and some of the parents know that there are programs out there that provides an empty cartridge collection program that allows schools to participate in fundraisers. And if saving money on printer cartridges or toner cartridges is an issue in your child’s classroom then the teacher should take some time to make a class project using recycled printer cartridges. Recycled printer cartridges cost 50% less than retail and helps to save the environment.

10,000 Postcards and the winner is Printer Toner vs Ink

printer toner postcardsWhich method of printing, using ink or color toner, produced the best response rate on a test of 10,000+ post cards in a direct-mail campaign? I know what you’re thinking: “Who dreams up these studies anyway?”

Nonetheless, it can be costly to not consider how a printing technology might involve responses to a marketing piece. And because mistakes costs money we need to find out the best process to make our advertisement budgets go farther.

Laser Printer Toner vs Inkjet

The results are definitely noteworthy, if not conclusive. The test was against a laser printer toner and one from the inkjet company Riso (who sponsored the research), so we don’t know how applicator these results would be to other machines from other manufacturers, like hp toner vs hp inkjet.

But aside from the comparison between technologies, there’s some good info about color toner vs. black and white toner and some other broader bits of info, including cost comparisons. Here are a few highlights and yes, the answer to my first question:

* More than 40% of the respondents believe that printing is the most effective media for business communications, and or so 90% of all respondents prefer to receive full-color direct marketing materials.

* Above and beyond response rate, two-thirds of the respondents indicate that the cost of printing is the most important criteria of a direct marketing campaign. Inkjet printing costs rather a bit more than laser costs.

* Inkjet produced cards generated about 4% fewer responses than cards printed with color laser equipment.

So there you go. Printer Toner is the winner by a hair, and it’s a pretty thin hair. The lesson to all of this is: color is preferred no matter what and laser color costs less and is more accepted.

One noteworthy mention is that when you go out to purchase printer cartridges for whatever technology you decide to use, seek out recycled cartridges. These cartridges often cost about 50% less than retail and most importantly you will be helping out the environment.

Printer Toner used to help fight crime

printer toner fingerprintIn a world full of answers on how to recycle just more or less everything under the sun there are always clever people who just go beyond traditional means. Over and over you hear about why you should recycle your printer cartridges from trying to save the environment to being able to save money and so forth. Even with today’s applied science the most overlooked resources often get over looked.

Printer Toner Recycled into Fingerprint Powder

Angus Carnie of 300 Recycling newly noted that he has had a fantastic response from all over the world for his solution to reprocess toner powder as forensic fingerprint powder.

Just as many people would assume to recycle a printer toner cartridge would mean you take it apart and then reconstruct it for resale. But with the new application of using it as a dust for the removal of fingerprints at a crime scene is just remarkable not only for the invention, but also for the value of recycling.

Printer and photocopier cartridges have been reused or broken down to recover the plastic and metal components; nonetheless, the waste toner powder presented a problem due to its complicated composition. Carnie eventually discovered that it made an excellent core material for print powders.

“Ironically, one of the other big issues was what to do with the different colors of toner, but I found that they were ideal for identifying finger prints on dark surfaces such as car dashboards,\” With yellow toner on a black background it makes for a very decided print.

Think doubly if your a thief. If you thought you were smart enough to get away clean think again. One step ahead is the law and in their hand is recycled printer toner from probably your toner cartridge you threw away.
