Recycling & Reuse

We began recycling hardware in 1987 and have recovered over 2.3 billion pounds of products for reuse or recycling since then. In 2010, we manufactured over 310 million HP LaserJet and ink cartridges that contained content from our "closed-loop" recycling process.

Help us continue to reduce technology waste by participating in our end-of-use options below.
