Hewlett-Packard continuously improves the design
processes of HP DeskJet printers to minimize the
negative impact on the office environment and on
the communities where printers are manufactured,
shipped, and used. Hewlett-Packard has also
developed processes to minimize the negative
impact of the disposal of the printer at the end of
printing life.

Reduction and Elimination

Paper Use

: The printer’s automatic/manual two-

sided printing capability reduces paper usage and
the resulting demands on natural resources. This
printer is suited for the use of recycled papers
according to DIN 19 309.


: Ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFCs

have been eliminated from Hewlett-Packard
manufacturing processes.


Design for recycling has been incorporated into
this printer. The number of materials has been kept
to a minimum while ensuring proper functionality
and reliability. Dissimilar materials have been
designed to separate easily. Fasteners and other
connections are easy to locate, access, and remove
using common tools. High priority parts have been
designed to access quickly for efficient
disassembly and repair. Plastic parts have been
primarily designed in no more than two colors to
enhance recycling options. A few small parts are
colored specifically to highlight customer access

Printer Packaging

: The packaging materials for

this printer have been selected to provide
maximum protection for the least cost possible,
while attempting to minimize environmental impact
and facilitate recycling. The rugged design of the
HP DeskJet printer assists in minimizing both
packaging materials and damage rates.

Plastic parts

: All major plastics and plastic parts

are marked according to international standards.
All plastic parts used in the printer housing and
chassis are technically recyclable and all use a
single polymer.
