To show that it’s a model citizen when it comes to environment concerns, HP reports that it has recycled more than 74 million kg of its own hardware and print cartridges globally last year. That’s 164-million pounds of computer waste, equivalent in weight to more than 600 jumbo jets, HP boasts. (Empty and hollow jumbo jets, we might note.)

HP also reports that it had collected more than 2.5 million units of hardware globally – weighing more than 50 million pounds (22.6 million kilograms) – to be refurbished for resale or for donation.

Cumulatively, HP has recycled more than 920 million pounds (417 million kilograms) of hardware and HP print cartridges from around the world. Congratulations.
