    HP Recycled 265 Million Pounds of Hardware in 2008
    HP also continues to adjust its product line to help businesses and consumers save energy.HP notes that to date it has recovered 1.71 billion pounds of electronic product and supplies, or almost the total weight of the Golden Gate Bridge. The company says that by the end of 2010 it is on track to recycle 2 billion pounds of products and reuse 450 million pounds.Despite its progress, HP still faces criticism. Greenpeace International’s latest update to its Guide to Greener Electronics found that HP, as well as other computer makers, won’t meet its promise to eliminate vinyl plastic (PVC) and brominated flame retardants (BFRs) from products by the end of 2009.Still, CIOs and IT managers view HP as the second-greenest computing choice, slightly behind Dell.

    HP Innovates Cartridge Recying Program
    HP has developed the ability to use recycled plastics in the production of new HP inkjet print cartridges, according to this report. More than 200 million cartridges have been manufactured using the process thus far. HP used more than 5 million pounds of recycled plastic in its inkjet cartridges last year, and the company plans to use twice as much in 2008. The amount of recycled content in the new cartridges varies between 70 to 100 percent of the total plastic used.HP’s recycling process uses a range of plastic products, from water bottles to HP inkjet cartridges. Since first piloting the process, HP claims to have used enough recycled plastic to fill more than 200 tractor trailers.
