Apple offer worldwide recycling
It seems they want to take some environmental responsibility and, over at their website, they've said that Apple retail stores will take back Apple products for “free, responsible recycling.”
The announcement offers gift cards if the unwanted product is reusable. Of course, you'll be able to buy more Apple products with your gift card. If the product you hand in is nothing but unusable junk, Apple have kindly said that they won't charge you to recycle it.
You might see parts of it being used in the next phone you buy from them, presumably.
That said, Apple will be stopping more than 421 million pounds of equipment going to landfills with this program.
“We believe we must be accountable for every Apple product at every stage of its use,” writes Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environmental initiatives.
