Apple Launches Free Computer Take-Back Program
All equipment is recycled domestically.
When a customer chooses to participate in the program, Apple will send an e-mail with instructions and a label for free shipping and recycling. Customers must package their recyclable equipment and attach the label provided. All equipment received by the program is recycled domestically, states Apple, and no hazardous material is shipped overseas. The program is available to customers in the 48 contiguous United States.
Apple also operates a free drop-off recycling service at its headquarters in Cupertino, CA, for used computer systems and home electronics.
