Hewlett-Packard offers people in the U.S. free money in exchange for their old tech equipment via its recycling program called “HP Consumer Buyback and Planet Partners Recycling Program”. In which consumers could determine the value of their old tech equipment and then use that worth to get a credit toward a new HP or Compaq brand product.
The program offers money in exchange for any brand of PC, monitor, printer, digital camera, or smartphone that HP determines still has some sort of value. It's part of HP's effort to recycle 2 billion pounds of electronic junk by 2010. As of now, the company has recycled more than 1 billion pounds of e-waste.
