Apple Will Recycle Any of Its Products at Apple Stores
Apr 22, 2014, 7:27 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Beginning today, consumers can bring any aging Apple product to an Apple Store for free recycling. The company explained its renewed commitment to sustainability in a post on its web site, which also includes other initiatives. Before today, Apple required users to fill out an online form before accepting old gear for recycling, and only accepted certain devices. The new program covers Apple smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, and accessories. Apple will provide customers with Apple Store gift cards for select products (iPhones and iPads) that are in good, working condition. Apple said it will also accept products from other companies during special, pre-announced recycling events. In addition to the recycling program, Apple said it is looking to make devices more power efficient, make devices free of toxic materials, as well as power its plants and facilities with renewable energy sources.
