It’s Earth Day, and Apple is marking the occasion with some good PR, announcing a new free recycling program on its Environment website. Starting now, you can take your old Apple products to any Apple store, and they’ll recycle the product(s) for free, and responsibly.

Apple also said that occasionally, it will hold events where you can bring in other company’s products for free recycling. (There’s no word on whether Apple will gleefully dispose of those competitor products and then hard sell you on the latest Apple gear.)

Apple recycling

Even better, if a given product has any value left and can be resold, Apple will give you some money back for it, too.

Apple is also promising that its paper packaging, gift cards, and iPhoto products are produced from paper mills that source from sustainable forests; that its data centers are powered by renewable energy sources; and that Apple products are built with “cleaner, safer materials to reduce and eliminate” the toxins commonly found in electronics.

Il devraient les racheter aux client ou alors contre remise! Free recycling, gros piège a mon sens...

That's nice. Especially the fact that they will give you something if it's got value.

What...so they can recycle the parts and make more money?

You normally pay to get stuff recycled? what?!

Here in Canada everything you buy has a recycle tax already added to the price and there are eco centers everywhere that will take your old junk with a smile.

Either sell it on eBay or see if it's old enough maybe it is collectible.

They won't take the 1998 iMac in the picture above. one of my neighbors had a few of those (different colors though) he had to give to Good Will last month just so they would be recycled.
