    HP meets 1B pound recycling goal
    July 
    2007Having met its goal six months early to recycle 1 billion pounds of
    electronics, Hewlett-Packard Co. said Friday it set a new target for
    another billion pounds by the end of 2010.Palo Alto-based HP  set its
    initial goal in 2004 after it had reached the half billion pound mark,
    then went on to recycle a further half billion pounds in the next three
    years.”Environmental responsibility is good business,” said Mark Hurd,
    HP chairman and chief executive officer. “We’ve reached the tipping
    point where the price and performance of IT are no longer compromised
    by being green, but are now enhanced by it.”In 2006, HP said it
    recovered 187 million pounds of electronics globally.HP said plastics
    and metals recovered from recycled products have been used to make a
    range of new products, including auto body parts, clothes hangers,
    plastic toys, fence posts, serving trays and roof tiles.
