    HP says it increased recycling by 17% this year
    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
    .

    HP recycles equivalent of 280 jumbo jets
    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.
