Close the Loop® (CtL) is a high tech resource recovery company with Australian and US operations focussed on the imaging supplies industry. Established in Australia in early 2001, CtL pioneered and maintains a brand promise of zero waste which drives innovation in taking the ‘waste’ from one industry and turning it into valuable inputs to another. End of life products are returned to the original manufacturer for remanufacturing and re-use where possible. If not, we use a range of patented processes to recover all the materials from those products. CtL provides its services to most of the leading global manufacturers of imaging equipment and with a network of over 35,000 collection points for used cartridges, we offer a unique and free service to the end user.
CtL is an unlisted public company with over 170 employees in Australia and the USA. TonerPave is the result of 13 years of dedicated R&D into the reuse of ‘waste’ toner powder. In 2013 the company won a Dupont Gold Award for reuse of recycled ink in commercial flexographic printing. We continuously produce clean high grade metal commodities and closed plastic loops.
