 LASER RECHARGE, INC., TO PARTICIPATE IN GOVERNMENT
 BUY RECYCLED INITIATIVE BY SHOWCASING PRODUCTS
 WASHINGTON, June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Laser Recharge, Inc. (a company that recycles laser printer toner cartridges), has been chosen as one of nearly 200 exhibitors from 33 states to participate in a recently announced Government Buy Recycled Products Initiative.
 Laser Recharge will showcase their recycled toner cartridges at a two-day government Buy Recycled Products Trade Fair and Showcase to be held in Washington June 29-30 at the Washington Hilton and Towers, 1919 Connecticut Ave. N.W.
 "Time To Close the Loop and Buy Recycled" is the theme of the two-day event that is expected to draw thousands of federal, state and other government and industry officials eager to expand the use of recycled-content materials.
 The government initiative resulted from the president's October 31, 1991, Executive Order which directed federal agencies to accelerate their purchasing of recycled-content products. Federal agencies sponsoring this initiative include the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Defense, General Services Administration, Office of Management and Budget and the President's Council on Environmental Quality. Co-sponsors include the Department of the Interior, Department of Agriculture and the Tennessee Valley Authority. Many units within these agencies are already using recycled toner cartridges.
 Government represents the biggest single market for products made with the materials that were recycled yesterday. The General Services Administration alone provides $4 billion of goods annually to U.S. government agencies worldwide. In fact, federal, state and local governments account for 21 percent of the $5 trillion gross national product.
 The purpose of the Recycled Products Trade is to help increase the use of recycled products by the government. "We're very happy to have been chosen to participate in such an exciting and unique event," said Laser Recharge President Marcus Webster. "This is a fantastic opportunity for manufacturers and suppliers of recycled content products to meet with federal and state agency procurement specialists under one roof so that we can show them what recycled products are available. We want to show them that recycled toner cartridges offer both quality and savings."
 Laser Recharge, Inc., will be showcasing "recycled (re-manufactured) toner cartridges" and describing related "value added" services. The use of recycled cartridges, said Webster, can save customers up to 50 percent the cost of new cartridges and reduce by millions the number of cartridges dumped in landfills. In addition to re-manufacturing laser cartridges, Laser Recharge, Inc., repairs and provides preventative maintenance to laser printers, which extends the life of equipment. Laser Recharge, Inc., also sells computer, fax and copier supplies. Maintenance agreements are easily arranged.
 Government agencies may purchase recycled cartridges and related services from Laser Recharge, Inc., through use of GSA contract No. GS-00F-7005A. For general information, call Laser Recharge, Inc., at 202-291-7820.
