Apparel hangers boosting HP’s recycling volumes

United States – Hewlett Packard has so far incorporated more than 500 tonnes of recycled apparel hangers into its printer products in the latest phase of its drive towards recycling.

More than 75% of HP’s ink cartridges and 24% of its jet toner cartridges are now manufactured from recycled plastics, a 50% increase in the number of ink cartridges with recycled content over the last year, the company confirms.

‘From cartridges with recycled plastic to energy-efficient printing products and waste-reducing packaging design, we are offering customers solutions that make it easy for them to enjoy cost and resource savings in their everyday lives,’ comments Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Inkjet and Printing Solutions at HP.

HP has been involved in collecting and recycling used cartridges since 1991. It estimates that to date, it has helped keep 566 million used cartridges out of landfill. In addition, since 2005 the printer giant has used 2.5 billion post-consumer plastic bottles to produce new ink cartridges.
