There is no 'bundled cost' per product for HP to recycle hardware products via the Planet Partners Program. As per the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive, HP are subject to mandatory fees for recycling of B2B WEEE. HP incurs this operational cost whether the program is utilized or not. The cost which HP incurs are absorbed by the various business units just like any other intangible "cost of sale" or operational figures.
HP offers free recycling of all electronic equipment once a customer has returned the equipment to an HP designated collection point. Should the customer wish to consolidate their IT WEEE to greater than 500 kg, HP can offer also offer free transportation to the HP designated collection point.
