Sainsbury's criticised on tech recycling

Printer cartridge recycling scheme 'misguided' and may hit charity fundraising

Sainsbury's has been criticised as "misguided" for its choice of a corporate printer cartridge recycling scheme over more ecofriendly cartridge reuse. The retailer has signed up to Hewlett Packard's Planet Partners corporate recycling scheme and may even extend it to customers, who would be given the option of dropping off spent cartridges for Sainsbury's to send away for recycling.

The HP partner scheme replaces a variety of take-back services that the grocery chain considered patchy at best, according to James McKechnie, Sainsbury's recycling and resource manager.
