Product return and recycling
Since 1987 when we began recycling hardware, HP has recovered over 2.3 billion pounds of products for reuse and recycling. HP helps extend the life of IT hardware through our remanufacturing programs, reducing environmental impacts and making IT equipment accessible to more people. We recycle products that are no longer suitable for reuse.
More than 310 million HP LaserJet and ink cartridges contained content from our “closed-loop” recycling process in 2010, as cartridges and parts are reduced to raw materials that can be used to make new cartridges and other metal and plastic products.
