HP and Wal-Mart are celebrating Earth Day by making it easier for customers to recycle their used electronics

Together, the companies will offer free recycling of an electronic product made by any manufacturer with the purchase of the new ENERGY STAR qualified HP DeskJet F4140 All-in-One printer. This offer is exclusively available at approximately 1,600 Wal-Mart stores throughout the United States now through May 5.

This promotion addresses all phases of the product lifecycle, thereby reducing overall environmental impact. An all-in-one printer consolidates functions so that less materials are used; the product is energy efficient during use; and this promotion allows for free recycling of another product at the end of its life.

"One of HP's goals is to address environmental responsibility at each stage of the lifecycle, including recycling programs that give our customers the opportunity to dispose of products responsibly," said Pat Tiernan, vice president, Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility, HP. "With Wal-Mart, we're able to reinforce our commitment to reducing our own environmental impact, as well as that of our customers, partners and suppliers."

Customers who purchase the energy-efficient HP DeskJet F4140 can visit www.hp.com or www.walmart.com to print a pre-paid mailing label, box up their old electronic equipment and ship it to one of HP's U.S. recycling facilities for environmentally responsible processing. This offer is valid for three months from the date of purchase.

HP's approach to environmental stewardship is integrated across its businesses and is visible in HP's own operations and facilities, its products and its supply chain. HP has been responsibly recycling for 20 years. In 2006, HP recycled more than 164 million pounds of hardware and print cartridges globally, and the company expects to meet its cumulative goal of recycling 1 billion pounds of equipment by the end of 2007 - HP.
