Video: Hewlett-Packard’s Recycling Efforts
Hewlett-Packard embraced alternative sourcing early in its history. By the 1990s, Hewlett-Packard’s facilities in Grenoble, France, and Roseville, California, were processing more than 500,000 combined pounds of obsolete equipment per month, 90 percent of which was prevented from entering landfills by being recycled for raw material or refurbished to service clients’ older equipment. By 1993, the figures were up to more than 850,000 pounds of equipment per month, 93 percent of which avoided being sent to landfills.
