25 schools have joined the OEM’s cartridge collection scheme.
HP has revealed further increases in its efforts to collect and shred empty cartridges in the Middle East, with 25 schools in Dubai signing up to the Planet Partners scheme, according to Gulf Today.
“Recycling of print cartridges will begin in 25 Dubai schools — both public and private — from January 2012. Further, our plan is to roll out this initiative out to schools in other emirates as well,” Noura Al Mutawa, director of activities and special needs department at the ministry of education, told Gulf News.
HP has been working to increase its cartridge collection network around the world, and first began the Planet Partners program in the UAE in 2009. Earlier this year it became apparent that further increases were on the way, as the OEM strengthened its partnership with Lavergne Group in Vietnam.
The company shreds and recycles cartridges collected by HP’s recycling drives.
