Hewlett-Packard sets recycling goal
Having met its goal six months early to recycle one billion pounds of electronics, Hewlett-Packard (HP) announced that it has set a new target for another billion pounds by the end of 2010.
The company set its initial goal in 2004 after it had reached the half billion pound mark. It went on to recycle a further half billion pounds in the ensuing three years. HP is now committing to recover a cumulative two billion pounds of electronics and print cartridges by the end of 2010, doubling its annual recovery rate.
