Recycling your IT stuffs via HP recycling program

by Forrest Sheng Bao

I am a human, one member of a kind of creature that won't act until the problem is on the nose.

Everyone nowadays generates lotta electronics waste. Our computers or electronic stuffs can emit poisonous chemicals to our environment if you simply bury them. You won't want you next generation to have only one eye or no brain. One way to solve this problem is to recycle them and let professional guys treat them properly. For example, effecting Sept. 1, 2008, Texas Recycling Bill (HB 2714) requires all computer manufactures to provide FREE and CONVENIENT recycling for consumers.

For consumers in Canada and the United States, there is a easy and free way to do so, the HP Consumer Buyback and Planet Partner Recycling Program. You can either just give old IT stuffs away to HP for free or trade some cash reward for you next purchase of HP products. The shipping is free if you drop them at UPS drop-off location. You can also pay $10 flat rate to let FedEx pick them up from your location.

The HP Consumer Buyback and Planet Partners Recycling Program accepts products of ANY brand manufacturer in the following product categories:
  • Desktop PCs
  • Workstations
  • Notebook PCs
  • Tablet PCs
  • Monitors, both CRT and LCD
  • Printers, both ink and laser
  • Scanners
  • Digital cameras
  • PDAs
  • Smartphones
So, next time when you have unused IT stuffs, do NOT simply dump them away but please recycle them. For more details, please visit
