Apple just announced plans to close the loop and make all of its products from recycled materials. We tend not to realize how damaging our electronics are for the environment – from mining materials to the toxic effects when we dump them . Apple starting tackling these problems last year with its  recycling robot , and now the electronics giant wants to only use recycled materials in its devices. Apple recently released its latest environmental report, and in it, the company claims that it is working towards using recycled materials to create its next generation of products. This will happen, in part, by reclaiming and re-using old Apple devices. Obviously they aren’t there yet, but Apple has never been shy when setting goals.

Comments Off on Apple Recycling Program Will Now Accept Old PCs for Free

Apple has decided to open its recycling program to a wider electronics world and will now be accepting old PCs, iPods and iPhones for free. They used to charge PC owners $30 to take their old computers – unless they bought a new Mac, in which case they’d recycle the old one for free as a thank you. Now there’s no need to hop onto the Mac wagon or shell out dough – your PC will be accepted and responsibly recycled , no questions asked. In the newly reconstructed program you can also get a gift certificate if your old device is still worth something, and most recycled iPods will score you 10% off a new one.
