HP Beach Clean Up Fund
Administered by MARINE CONSERVATION SOCIETY
What is the HP Beach Clean Up Fund?
A storm at sea in 2014 resulted in the loss of HP printer
cartridges, which are being found washed up on UK
coastlines. The HP Beach Clean Up Fund has been set up
by HP in conjunction with the Marine Conservation Society
and Newquay Beachcombing to support local and regional
clean-up costs on UK beaches in areas that have been
affected by HP cartridges.
HP has also set up a cartridge collection and recycling
service* for safe disposal of any cartridges found.
