Office Depot And HP Offer Recycling Program

The program, which runs from July 18 through September 6, 2004(1), will leverage HP’s electronics recycling expertise and Office Depot’s retail presence to offer consumer and business customers the most comprehensive, convenient and environmentally responsible electronics recycling service available.

Office Depot and HP will collect and recycle a broad range of information technology and digital entertainment products from any manufacturer, including desktops, notebooks, keyboards, mice, printers, scanners, handhelds, digital cameras, fax machines, desktop copiers, flat panel displays, monitors, TVs (27″ or smaller), TV/VCR combos and cell phones. All products collected from Office Depot stores will be recycled at HP’s U.S. recycling facilities in Roseville, Calif. and near Nashville, Tenn.

“This is the latest example of Office Depot’s commitment to implement industry-leading initiatives that encourage the use and distribution of environmentally preferable products and services,” said Tyler Elm, director of Environmental Affairs for Office Depot. “We will continue to work with our business partners, environmental organizations and other stakeholders to provide our customers with the resources and knowledge they need to be environmentally responsible.”

“Environmental responsibility is not only a part of HP’s business strategy, it has become an integral component of the customer experience,” said Lee Ray Massey, senior vice president, Imaging and Printing Group – Americas, HP. “This unique program with an important partner in the retail channel allows us to bring our recycling capabilities directly to consumers in a remarkably easy-to-use way.”

“We are excited about the partnership that Office Depot and HP announced today,” said Thomas P. Dunne, Acting Assistant Administrator for the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “We look forward to this program increasing convenient opportunities for electronics recycling in the U.S. and leading to other productive partnerships among retailers, manufacturers and governments.”

With return and recycling operations in more than 30 countries, HP recycled more than 102 million pounds of unwanted computer products globally in 2003. More information on HP’s recycling program is available at www.hp.com/recycle.
