Apple Reuse and Recycling Programme

Reuse and Recycling Programme

Apple’s commitment to the environment includes finding the most efficient ways to reuse or recycle electronic equipment at the end of its useful life, including iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC computers, and displays from any manufacturer. You may even get some money for your old equipment.

Apple recycles responsibly

Get value from your old equipment.

With the Reuse and Recycling Programme, you could turn your old equipment into a brand-new Mac, iPod, iPhone or iPad.

Whether it’s an iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC computer, working or not, we’ll take it and determine if it qualifies for reuse and has a monetary value. If it does, the amount will be credited directly into your bank account. If it doesn’t, you can recycle it responsibly through one of our free recycling programmes.

How to get started:

  1. Tell us about your device.

    Only iPhone, iPad, and Mac or PC desktop and notebook computers qualify for the Apple Reuse and Recycling Programme.

  2. Get your estimate and ship your device.

    The service is provided by Dataserv,1 who will estimate the fair market value of your device. They will send you a pre-paid shipping label.2 You can then pack your device carefully and send it for verification.

  3. The amount is sent directly to your bank account.

    After entering the relevant information on the Dataserv web portal, the monetary value of your device will be transferred into your bank account and you can use it to purchase a brand-new Mac, iPod, iPhone or iPad.
