    Hewlett Packard Will Surpass Its 2007 Recycling Goal Of 1 Billion Pounds
    2006 recycling efforts increased 16%.
    2007 — HP recycled more than 164 million pounds of hardware and print
    cartridges globally in its 2006 fiscal year — an increase of 16% over
    the previous year, and the equivalent weight of more than 600 jumbo jet
    airliners, according to the company.In addition, HP collected more than
    2.5 million units of hardware globally — weighing more than 50 million
    pounds — to be refurbished for resale or donated.To date the company
    has recycled more than 920 million pounds of hardware and HP print
    cartridges globally. This puts the company on track to surpass its goal
    of recycling 1 billion cumulative pounds by the end of this year.”Part
    of environmental responsibility at HP is to provide global recycling
    programs that give our customers choice, convenience and control in how
    to dispose of products responsibly,” said Pat Tiernan, HP’s vice
    president of Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility.

    Highlights from HP’s recycling programs in 2006 include:
    * In Europe, the Middle East and Africa, HP recycled more than 84 million pounds of hardware.

    In the Americas region, HP collected more than 42 million pounds of
    hardware. A series of free consumer recycling events held throughout
    the U.S. between June and September recovered 1 million pounds alone.

    In the Asia Pacific region, HP nearly doubled the amount of hardware it
    recycled to almost 7 million pounds by aligning its trade-in,
    refurbishing and recycling operations to provide full asset-recovery
    services for business customers in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India,
    Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan.
