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: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • 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.

One less noisy office distraction

One less noisy office distraction
You shouldn’t have to struggle to hear yourself think while sitting at your own desk. That’s why the Samsung SCX-3205 is engineered to be whisper quiet, generating a noise level of just 49dBA while it’s printing. That’s less than the gentle hum of a running refrigerator! A desktop printer that does its work while letting you focus on yours? Cool.

Capture what catches your eye

Samsung’s AnyWeb Print software lets you go hunting and gathering on the Web. You can utilize the SCX-3205 to easily select, drag, and drop content from different web pages onto a printable scrap board in your browser window, all while you surf the web. Items can be printed quickly or saved in different file formats. It’s an easy way to collect, arrange, and edit useful reference points and resources you can only find on the web for big projects – or even just for fun.

        2011-09-24

          Good Points: Quick and economical, with good print quality and a novel 'eco' mode, which prints two pages on one to save ink Bad Points: The accompanying software is fairly basic and I found I needed to update this manually from the Samsung web site to get it to work effectively

          2012-03-26

            Good Points: It is quick for coping & efficient Bad Points: Notice if eco print button is pressed - there seem to be hot steam coming out..
