14.3 Print cartridge recovery

Customers interested in recycling their genuine HP print cartridges can participate

in HP's Planet Partner's Program for inkjet cartridges. HP offers this program in more

countries/regions than any other inkjet cartridge manufacturer in the world. This

program is provided as a free service to HP customers as an environmentally sound

solution for these products at end-of-life.
To participate, simply follow the directions provided on the HP Web site at this



. This service is not available in all countries/regions.

Customers may be asked for their name, phone number, and address.
Because HP's unique recycling processes are very sensitive to material

contamination, we cannot take back and recycle cartridges from other

manufacturers. The end products of the recycling process are used in the

manufacture of new products, and HP must ensure the composition of the material

is consistent. To do that, we recycle only HP original cartridges. This program does

not extend to refilled cartridges.

Returned cartridges are separated for purification into raw materials for use in other

industries to manufacture new products. Examples of products made from recycled

HP print cartridge materials include automobile parts, trays used in microchip

fabrication processes, copper wire, steel plates, and the precious materials used in

electronics. Depending on the model, HP is able to recycle up to 65% of the print

cartridge by weight. The remaining parts that cannot be recycled (ink, foam, and

composite parts) are disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
