HP Extends Recycling Programme For SMBs, Consumers In India

HP has extended its recycling programme in India beyond corporate customers to include consumers and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

Beginning May 15, customers will be able to drop off HP-branded technology equipment at HP service centres across nine cities in India.

HP will accept, at no additional charge, any HP printer, scanner, fax machine, notebook or desktop PC, monitor, handheld device, or camera and associated external components such as cables, mice and keyboards. After collection, HP will consolidate the products and sort for recycling locally in India.

Subsequent phases of the programme will increase the number of drop-off points in those cities and include additional cities over the next year.

"With technology products and consumer environmental awareness on the rise, there’s a greater urgency around disposing of equipment in an environmentally-responsible manner," said Jean-Claude Vanderstraeten, environment director, Asia-Pacific and Japan [APJ], HP. "We designed our consumer recycling programme to make it simple for our customers to do their part for environmental sustainability."

This expansion to the consumer market completes HP’s recycling service offerings to the different market segments in which HP operates in India. HP has had a product take-back programme for corporate customers in India since 2003.

HP's product take-back and recycling programme are part of its comprehensive end-of-life asset recovery services.
