    HP Recycles PCs in China
    The expanded program offers free services to Chinese consumers and small businesses.
    Hewlett-Packard
    Co. has begun recycling PCs and other products for Chinese consumers
    and small businesses, expanding a free program that already existed for
    large companies.”We’ve offered recycling to corporate and enterprise
    customers in China for many years, and now we’re extending this to
    consumers and small businesses in response to customer demand,” said
    Ryan Donovan, an HP spokesman.Environmental protection is a growing
    concern in China, where cities and the countryside have been ravaged by
    years of headlong economic growth and heavy pollution. The country has
    also become a major destination for electronic waste shipped from
    overseas that has resulted in pollution in the towns where these items
    are processed.Starting Tuesday, Chinese consumers can drop off HP
    computers and other products, such as printers, monitors, and scanners,
    for recycling at service centers in 31 Chinese cities, the company
    said. These products will be sorted by HP and then sent out for
    recycling in China.

    Details of the hardware recycling program are available on HP’s Web site (in Chinese).
    HP’s
    Chinese recycling effort for used PCs will be expanded over the next
    year to include more cities and additional drop-off points, the company
    said.HP isn’t the only PC vendor that offers free recycling of PCs and
    other equipment in China. Last December, Dell Inc. announced a program
    that will recycle PCs and other equipment for corporate customers in
    China. Under that program, returned equipment may either be refurbished
    and resold, or sent out for recycling.
