According to a National Magazine

"you can help the environmement and raise money for charity by sendig expired cartridges to Eurosource. Register at click here

They will send a Freepost evenvelope"

I hate chucking them in the bin so I've enrolled and I thought I would post the address.

Apologies for it not being a helproom topic and again if its already been posted

I think you will find the type of cartrige acceptable is somewhat restricted to Bubblejet types and Manufacturers originals.[ HP/Lex/Canon/Dell and similar family] No Clones not Epson chipped

I can see that makes sense,
Ah well back to chucking them in the bin

Thought about relling your own?

It can be fun --- messy but fun

Also W H Smith and other stores/charities do similar things with free bags and collection boxes

Nobody wants Epson cartridges

Staples and PCWorld have boxes by the door, I use the packaging that the new came in.

Sorry I did not respond to your suggestion about refills but it brought back too many painful memories.

However now that I have had a couple of glasses of North of the Border falling down water I am able to relive the memory.

I had a Lexmark three colour printer and I was doing a refill when I knocked over a full bottle of Cyan onto a fairly new wood (Butchers Block) type tale.

Her indoors that must be obeyed then suggested in a very quiet way that perhaps new or compatibles might be better,

Nuff said

Aaah the thought of North of the Border Falling Down Water.

A cure for many ill's but not for refilling things [ except the glass] or other steady hand projects I must confess.
