Five ink-splattered matches in the Ring of Recycling later, we have five multinational corporations still in the competition: Brother, Hewlett Packard, Panasonic, Samsung, and Sharp. Taken to the dump are Canon, Konica Minolta, Kyocera Mita, Ricoh, and Xerox.
The survivors will now face… a death match!
Does the company take back all its used toner cartridges?
Hewlett Packard: No! Not all of its inkjet products can be recycled, according to Hewlett Packard.
Sharp: Yes, though they do warn you that you could be charged for sending non-Sharp products.
Can customers print from the website?
Hewlett Packard: Yes!
Panasonic: No! You can submit a request to the website for a replacement label.
Sharp: No! You have to order eco-boxes.
How much information do you have to give the company before you can print a label?
Brother: None! Brother requires NO INFORMATION AT ALL from its customers!
Hewlett Packard: Some: Hewlett Packard Requires your name, address, email address, and telephone number.
Panasonic: Some. Panasonic requires your name, address, and phone number.
Samsung: Some. Your name, address, email address, and telephone number are required, and THEN Samsung automatically opts you into its email marketing program unless you uncheck a box.
Sharp: Some. Your name, address, email address, phone number, and type of business are required.
