A major office machines manufacturer has launched a programme in the US state of California to highlight consumer recycling of printer cartridges and inkjet cartridges.
HP has signed a deal with the state government to provide recycling facilities at all state buildings so that HPprinter cartridges – as well as other brands – can be recycled.
Together, the partnership aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 500 tonnes per year.
The programme works with the eco-friendly initiatives set out by the state’s governor Arnold Schwarzenegger last year.
Michael Hoffmann, senior vice-president at HP, said: "HP is proud to work with California state agencies to continue building upon a shared commitment to environmental responsibility.
"The initial success of this program highlights just one way HP can help customers reduce the environmental impact of printing while also decreasing costs."
Last month, HP scooped four prestigious prizes at a major awards ceremony.
The subscribers to Wide-Format Imaging lauded HP in a number of categories, including heaping praise on the HP Designjet H35000/H45000, which was honoured with the best Wide-Format UV Printer award.
