    Just got all excited, thinking I'd found a new way to make loads of cash. Unfortunately, they don't accept Epson cartridges.

    Does anyone know of any companies that will pay cash for used Epson cartridges?

    They seem to pay 10p for most cartridges. I use the Tesco recycling scheme - 50 points on the clubcard for each plus 50p to charity.

    Epson not accepted though.

    Apparently yes (Only virgin i.e. non-recycled cartridges and not Lexmark manufactured HP toner cartridges nor anything that is broken)



    I would double check with your employer first though. They may not be so happy if they discover you are making money from them, even if you are removing their scrap. It's not worth losing your job over!

    Has your company got a suggestion scheme? Before you say no, best to double check. I've worked for a number of employers and used their suggestion schemes for financial reward even though the majority of the employees including some managers and even some of the personnel department didn't even know of it's existence.

    Why not suggest your employer use the site to obtain money for their used cartridges rather than just disposing of them (which they probably have to pay someone to take them away). A good suggestion scheme often rewards the employee based on the amount of savings your employer is anticipated to make.

    Tesco scheme is still running, i got loads of bags and it's up to 10 a bag, so you get 10x50 points per bag!

    I sent mine off over a month ago, i wonder how long it takes for the points to be added?

    Anyone recived them yet?

    Yeah the Tesco thing is still going I think - I would contact The Recycling Factory who deal with the cartridge recycling scheme for tesco!!!

    Also you can recycle printer cartridges to raise money for yourself or charity......it is really good tel is 0800 0910696 and web is www.therecyclingfactory.com - I do not think they take Epson though!!!

    I hope this helps!!

    The company you are selling these cartridges to is known as a broker

    They will sell the cartridges on to refilling firms such as Jettech or cartridge world

    They don't accept Epson cartridges because it is far cheaper to buy compatible cartridges than it is to refill them and there are 1000000's around

    Tesco does not credit for epson cartridges (Check their site)

    And 50 points is alot less that £2.00

    If you have empty injet cartridges try www.catseatmice.com, they dont advertise prices but of you email them then they will give you an empty cartridge price

    A much more cost effective method is to have your cartridge refilled once agaon just email them and ask what discount you will get for supplying an empty cartridge

    Has anyone ever used http://www.therecyclingfactory.com .....?

    I sent a load of carts off a few weeks back and they acknowledged receiving them in an e-mail but have never paid out...

    I e-mailed them and they gave me some rubbish about "payments are made at the start of the month so you would have missed the June one, you'll get paid at start of July" but needless to say, still nothing has turned up.

    I'd be very weary of sending anything into these people until we know they are going to pay out honestly! Will report back if anything turns up... Really annoying me because I have loads more carts waiting to go off and need the £££ but not going to let them get away without paying up!

  • MORPH3US
    Update, just got my £15 cheque yesterday... not bad for sending off a few ink cartridges that I had no use for!

    The cheque took quite a long time but least now I know they are legit, I can send off loads more that I have lying around!
