HP is committed to reducing the resources required to make and use our products. Beyond design, this includes offering robust repair, reuse, and recycling programs, including the HP Planet Partners Program.

Please keep in mind that HP is only able to recycle HP and Samsung original print cartridges. Our recycling processes have been designed for empty original HP and Samsung print cartridges and are not equipped to handle other manufactured cartridges.

Generally, for printing supplies we offer "Drop off" and "Mail in"* options (availability depending on location):

  • Drop off at one of our partner's authorized retailer collection sites
  • Individual return solutions (postage-paid envelopes and labels) for low-volume business customers and consumers
  • Bulk returns solution (box collection services) that is targeted to business customers (those customers that use lots of cartridges and can recycle them efficiently using this service)

For further information and to participate in the Planet Partners Program, start at http://www.hp.com/recycle. Then, you can select your country from the drop-down menu and check if the HP ink and toner cartridges, and Samsung toner cartridges option is available.

*For using the "Mail in" option, first check inside the original cartridge box. You should have received a free return postage label with your purchase in case this return option is available for your product in your country. HP provides a free recycling label in the box for new A4 Original HP toner cartridges. HP does not provide a label in the box for new A3 Original HP toner cartridges. 

US or Canada specifics can be found in the following solution: We lost the pre-paid label for returning our HP supplies. Where do we send them? / How do we order or print a return label? (U.S. specific)
