HP cartridge recycling program
Since 1990, the HP LaserJet Toner Cartridge Recycling Program has
collected more than 12 million cartridges that otherwise would have
been discarded into landfills or similar facilities. Once a cartridge is
returned through the prepaid return program, it is disassembled, and
reusable components and the plastic housing are cleaned and
inspected for quality conformance. After passing strict inspection
procedures, materials such as nuts, screws, and clips are reclaimed
and used to produce new cartridges. Remaining materials are melted
down and used as raw materials for a variety of other products. Over
95 percent (%) of the weight of returned materials is recycled. For
