    Cash for ink cartridges 8th Oct 17 at 11:44 PM
    I have a few HP cartridges (some original, some compatible) what are the places that still pay any money for them? I heard The recycling Factory has a minimum to pay out and other people say they have problems with Tesco adding the points to the clubcard and they can't be bothered. Is there any good place you have found to get something for them? Are the compatible (non original) of any use at all?

    I have used The Recycling Factory before, but you're right about the minimum payment. I've found mixed reviews about a lot of companies. The issue is, they can all turn around and say that your cartridges are no good and they're not going to pay you.
    I found that The Recycling Factory don't like the HP Instant Ink cartridges. There's some more information about it selling them here. https://www.householdmoneysaving.com/selling-old-ink-cartridges/

    Ebay is a good option for these! We sell our ink cartridges when they are used/empty on there and they always go quite quickly!

    I second this - it is best to sell them a few at a time though as the postage for a 2nd class parcel with royal mail will set you back £2.90

    Thank you for the eBay tip, I have dozens of empty cartridges littering the place and will check out eBay.
    I'm the Board Guide for the Ebay Board , Charities Board , Dosh & Disability , Up Your Income and the Local MoneySaving-England board which means I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move posts there. However, do remember, board guides don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with this). Any views are mine and not the official line of MoneySavingExpert.com
