    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.
