All products returned to HP for recycling are processed in the region where they are collected where ever possible. We take extreme care to ensure that our recycling vendors manage e-waste responsibly. We have implemented global Hardware Recycling Standards that outline specific requirements of our recycling vendors, including the proper reuse, recovery or recycling of all materials and components, responsible storing and processing of materials, accounting of materials processed, compliance with HP's Supplier Code of Conduct and regular assessments. Our recycling partners are audited regularly.
