Apple Will Recycle Any of Its Products at Apple Stores

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.

Sweet...

I wonder if they will recycle the 3GS whose battery smoked and sprayed stuff all over and then exploded? They wont replace it because its out of warranty and I'm not supposed throw it away because now its toxic waste, and I keep missing the HazMat recycling events.

I guess they cant say "Sorry if anything caught on fire" or "Sorry about those singed sheets on the eight year old's bed" because that would admit liability, but they surely will not, probably because they aren't sorry. But at least now I know where to take it.
you make it sound like the thats the fist time thats ever happened and like it only happns with iPhones

It happened with android phones and most likely every othr OS as well
Wow you are such an Android fanboy. That would never happen to an iPhone. They have the best build quality and any iPhone will last forever.
