Default Spent Ink cartridges

What are my fellow Epson guys/girls doing with old Epson F2000 Ink Cartridges.
Do I send them back to Epson or do I take them down to Office Depot and get a free box of paper?
Thoughts/ideas.
Same goes for the waste ink, dispose with local waste authority I suppose and record for Enviromental due dilligence.

Cheers

Sean

To my knowledge Epson does not take used ink cartridges back.

Open and check how much inks are still remained. Actually 600ml cart has extra ink than 600ml.(by EPSON). I hope those are recyclable.
Cheers! Inks are on me always.

Second thought, I will call my plastic junk collector Monday. Hold on to it until I post here.
Father's Day is coming. We have responsibility to give Healthy Earth to our kid and Grandkid and more.
Cheers! Inks are on me always.

Okay,
Talk with plastic junk collector $1/kg. Little more than 2.2 lbs. Good quality plastic.
Shipping will be a killer.
Solution: keep until enough. Ship to AA use AA ups account. Ground.
I will sell to this guy. Give you money. Or charge on AA card.
Save Earth, help Earth, few hundred bulk per month is better than give pan handler the money especially rainy day. It kills me when I see them. Remind me when I was a street vendor. Often soaked by rain.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

Cartridge has filter in it. Epson did this for extra protection.
Cannot be reused is my guess.
I am wondering what is net cost to make like that?
Meanwhile don't throw away, lol. Save Earth. Green! Remind me golfing.
Cheers! Inks are on me always.

Anyone have any ideas on best disposal method of waste ink/cleaning fluid.
I have nice amount now.

Local waste collectors? Want to be EPA compliant.

You should do what I do. I looked up my local Epson headquarters office, and I send all my waste ink back to epson with no return address on it.

You want to make me dump/waste ink in my machine daily, you will be getting it back one way or another.
