Printer cartridge & mobile phone recycling

I've been making some enquiries about printer cartridge recycling.

Empty Cartridge seem to be pretty good and they even offer to pay you money in exchange for certain valuable types of cartridge.

You might also want to try Recycling Appeal, who collect cartridges and mobile phones to raise money for charity.

Almost all printer manufacturers now make an effort to help reduce waste by recycling old printer cartridges. The people at Empty Cartridge have told me that the one exception is Epson, who seem to think it's better for them to just keep producing new ones all the time. Maybe that's something to bear in mind next time you're shopping around for a new printer.
