    I also use TRF. Been paid many times both by cheque and BACs. Been paid £395.50 'O_O

    Currently owed £19.40 ... you can check balance on their site too.

    That's over a few years and not all the cartridges were mine. I always ask what people were going to do with their empties and volunteer to recycle them before they got binned.

    For Epson and Kodak, just take them to Tesco or send them to TRF anyway. They get disposed of properly. I post off any brands to them and let them sort through them. I'm just happy their get disposed of properly, plus it's free post.

    How profound. Is there any reason for this, other than to be contrary to the thread?

    Hi all,

    My request is a simple one, I want one set of Blank Used Empty Original HP Cartridge for Refill Purposes.

    Model is 953 or 953 XL

    Printer Model is Officejet Pro 8715

    Anyone any idea of how I can source these, please let me know. It has to be HP Originals.

    I know this is quite an old thread, but there is some information here about seeling old cartridges.

    Hi Tony,

    You said, "Recycling Centre" I take it you mean, local recycling centre near you, is that correct.

    Apart from ebay, are there any other online resources you use.

    I used one in my local town earlier this month but they offer a nationwide service, and pick up the cartridges. The price was competitive and the money was in my account 2 days after first contact, so can't complain. I was going to throw them away but on a whim decided to see if I could see them - bonus!

  • Hope this thread is still okay to use, it's the most recently updated one I could fine in relation to this.

    I have an Epson XP6005 using 202XL cartridges. I'd be surprised if the empty cartridges weren't worth anything as the official cartridges are super expensive, and even the non-official ones are pretty pricey. But I'm struggling to find anywhere that takes Epson at all. TRF only seems to list older Epson cartridges (none of which they pay out on).

    Anybody have any ideas? Will anywhere take/pay out on these? Is it still worth selling empties on eBay?
