HP go green ?

So HP want our empty cartridges click here , they aren't going to give any incentive for returning cartridges, nor even pay postage. When retailers like Choice will give £3 credit for an empty and there are so many companies chucking out post paid envelopes and promising donations to assorted charities for every return, forgive me if I don't see the point, do HP want the project to fail ?

"do HP want the project to fail ? " quite probably just think of the money they will save, whilst still being able to say that they promote returning empty cartridges.

The other thought is that every cartridge they can " break down into component materials " is one less to be sold by a recycler. Thus reducing the quantity of cartridges the competition has to work with while the consumer foots the bill, or are we being too cynical ?

Probably not.

That's a pretty pathetic effort by HP at the price we pay for a mouses piddle of ink they must be joking! most recyclers ink is just as good as HP & you get a free return envelope all for a much lower price. I use the ink factory .com (no connection) & although the delivery can be a bit slow occasionally depending on stock the ink is fine no problems & cheaper. US Cynical Nah!

...so I don't give a stuff, but I do have a nifty little pen I blagged from an official HP demonstrator quite a while back and I must say in all fairness that it is still going strong on the original mouse piddle of ink.

The thing that I have picked up on from the article is that the location of the recycling plant remains a secret. For gods sake, why?
