Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from:

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Enjoy quality printouts

Enjoy quality printouts

Samsung's unique ReCP (Rendering Engine for Clean Page) Technology helps improves the overall quality and vibrancy of your black & white printing, ensuring every printout looks great. It automatically sharpens the focus of both graphics and text, while solid objects are overlapped to help eliminate white gaps.
Help Prevent Document Fading with Polymerized Toner

Help Prevent Document Fading with Polymerized Toner

Printouts have crisper lines and intense colours, and pages curl less often. Additionally, the high wax content helps improve the image gloss and durability, which helps prevent the document from fading.

Minimal downtime

Minimal downtime

Toner replacement for the MultiXpress 8240NA printers is designed for ease of use. In addition, users can correct paper jams without the need for a maintenance call. Fewer steps are required to replace high-frequency service items (HFSIs), such as fusers, rollers and image transfer units (ITUs). Fewer maintenance steps means the device is more readily available when users need it.

Extensive paper handling and finishing capabilities

Workgroup members can finish various types of documents with the optional 1,250 / 3,250 finisher (hole punch and booklet), stapling and folding features. Users can select from the optional dual-cassette feeder (DCF) and high-capacity feeder (HCF).
