HP develops closed loop recycling programme

Hewlett Packard has developed a closed loop inkjet cartridge recycling programme to keep its plastic out of landfill.More than 200 million cartridges have been manufactured using the process so far.

Environmental takeback compliance manager Kirstie McIntyre said: HPs approach to the environmental management of its print cartridges considers every facet of the lifecycle from design to manufacture to recycling. This initiative is the latest advancement from HPs design for environment programme, which reduces the environmental impact of HP cartridges through material usage, ease of recycling, and packaging efficiency.
