Celebrating Earth Day with these HP Eco Solutions

There are several ways that HP makes it easy to reduce the environmental impact of wide-format printing.

Did you know that your HP inkjet cartridges can be recycled? What about your HP recyclable media printed with HP inks? Would you like to get cash to trade in an old printer? We’ll help you with all the answers:

HP has been involved with product recycling for more than 25 years and utilizes the materials in a “closed-loop” process, which means cartridge materials returned are transformed into raw materials used in the production of future cartridges. In 2017, HP included the use of recycled plastic and polypropylene in the creation of new original HP ink cartridges, which has had a significant reduction in overall environmental impact.

Many of HP’s medias are FSC®/PEFC™/REACH certified and can be recycled within local guidelines; however, to be properly recycled, any printed graphics must have been printed using HP printers and HP OEM ink. There are several options for DesignJet, Latex and PageWide technologies, and we’ve highlighted a few below:




Whether you are participating in the HP Supplies Recycling or the “Cash in Trade up” programs, HP has made it easy for you to recycle some of your most frequently purchased products, which means less waste piling up and more raw materials available for the production of new products.

If you have questions about these recycling initiatives or other available certified HP media, call 800-453-9538 or visit LexJet.com.
