    HP extends planet partners recycling program in Eastern Europe and the Middle East
    HP today announced the expansion of its successful HP Planet Partners Program to business customers across Bulgaria, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
    Commencing on 1 July 2009, HP business customers in these markets will have access to free, easy, state-of-the-art return and recycling service for HP original print cartridges, helping them meet their own sustainability goals whilst also contributing to a wider reduction in plastic waste. No cartridge returned to HP through the HP Planet Partners Program ends up in landfill.

    Taking advantage of the HP Planet Partners Program is straightforward – business customers simply go to http://www.hp.com/recycle/, select the ‘enterprise & public sector’ or ‘SMB’ option as required and specify the correct type of empty cartridges. They then receive a collection box, which when full is collected by HP and taken to one of its cartridge recycling depots for processing.

    The turnaround time for used cartridge collection and delivery is just five business days.
    By bringing the HP Planet Partners Program to the Middle East, HP is continuing to deliver on its commitment to encourage more sustainable business practices in these important emerging markets.’Environmental responsibility has represented a core value of HP since the company’s earliest days. IPG has made a strong contribution to helping companies reduce their environmental footprint through landmark initiatives such as the HP Planet Partners Program. With this latest expansion, we are delighted to be bringing this service to business customers for the first time in these critical growth markets,’explained Jean-Pierre Le Calvez, vice president, marketing, Imaging and Printing Group, EMEA.

    HP designs with recycling in mind. The company recycles its own waste and offers customers the opportunity to do the same through schemes such as the HP Planet Partners Program, a free service available in more than 50 countries, regions and territories. HP recently achieved a milestone in environmental responsibility by recycling more than 250 million HP print cartridges worldwide since the inception of HP Planet Partners in 1991.HP and the environment
