A global electronics manufacturer has strengthened its commitment to protecting the environment with a host of recycling events.

Hewlett Packard (HP) announced it would be expanding its programs for the reusing of materials from old computers and printers with a series of collection initiatives.

In addition, a spokesman for the group reminded people of the importance of ensuring gadgets and electronics are recycled and how failing to do so can have a negative impact on the planet.

John Frey, manager of corporate environmental strategies at HP, said a large part of its green operations were reliant on public involvement.

He added: "It is critical that we work with communities to explore innovative approaches to electronics recycling, so we can continue to offer the most environmentally responsible solution available."

In the last year, envirofone.com donated more than £500,000 to charities while offsetting over six tonnes of carbon per day via mobile recycling.
