    Nov. 05 — Hewlett-Packard reports that it increased recycling by 17 percent during its recently completed fiscal year.
    The Palo Alto, Calif.-based computer company said it recycled approximately 140 million pounds of hardware and print cartridges around the world during the 12-month period ended Oct. 31. That´s the same weight as 280 jumbo jets, the company said.
    The company also collected 2.5 million hardware units, representing another 50 million pounds, which will be refurbished for resale or donation.
    “HP´s commitment to environmental responsibility includes our efforts to limit the environmental impact of products throughout their life cycles,” said David Lear, vice president of corporate, social and environmental responsibility.
    The company has recycled more than 750 million pounds of hardware and print cartridges around the world to date and wants to recycle 1 billion pounds by the end of 2007

    Hewlett-Packard recycled about 140 million pounds of hardware and print cartridges in the past year.
    HP announced Monday that the efforts — which pulled in the weight of 280 jumbo airliners — surpassed last year’s by 17 percent. The company also collected more than 2.5 million units, or more than 50 million pounds of hardware for refurbishing, resale, and donations, according to its 2005 Global Citizenship Report.
    In all, HP has recycled more than 750 million pounds of hardware and print cartridges since opening its first recycling facility in Roseville, California in 1997. The company has set a goal of recycling one billion pounds of computing and printing products by the end of 2007. HP will expand the program to include more customers and new ways to return and recycle equipment.
    The recycling program currently operates in more than 36 countries, regions, and territories. The recovered plastics and metals are recycled into car parts, clothing hangers, toys, fence posts, serving trays and roof tiles.
    In addition to Hewlett-Packard’s initiatives, consumers and advocates are demanding that computer companies do more to promote recycling.
