875 Million! No, that’s not the latest lottery jackpot. That’s how many original HP Ink and Toner cartridges have been recycled by customers with HP Planet Partners, and that number is growing every day. We all know recycling is a good idea to preserve the planet for future generations, but in today’s hybrid work environment it can be difficult to know what the best practices are when it comes to recycling ink & toner cartridges. HP and W.B. Mason are partnering together to make it as seamless as possible so you can join an unbroken circle of heroes. Read on to learn about your key role in HP’s closed loop recycling process.

What can you do to help?

You, the customer, play the most important role in committing to the decision to recycle your original HP cartridges. Every cartridge that you recycle is one less cartridge that will inevitably find it’s way into a landfill or the ocean if thrown in the trash. W.B. Mason is here to help you by making the pickup process quick and easy!

Here’s how it works:
Simply box up your used HP cartridges and place them in the designated location where your uniformed W.B. Mason driver typically delivers your supplies. The driver will enter the pickup into our system on your behalf and bring it back to our W.B. Mason warehouse where it will be processed and shipped back to HP to begin the recycling journey. No need to contact anyone to request a pickup!

What happens next?

Once HP receives the used cartridges, they are sorted, shredded, and combined with other post-consumer plastics to close the loop. The raw materials are then used to produce new, high-quality, original HP cartridges that are ready to be shipped.

By purchasing new original HP cartridges and utilizing HP & W.B. Mason’s partnership, you are playing a key role in keeping over 5 billion plastic bottles out of our landfills and oceans. That’s enough bottles to reach the moon and back! Shop W.B. Mason’s latest selection of original HP supplies.

Thank you for doing your part to close the loop!
