Apple expands recycling options for old computers, mobile devices
Apple announced today that is is expanding and updating its Reuse and Recycling Program. The updated service allows anyone to send their old computers and monitors to Apple to be recycled for free -- regardless of brand. Previously Apple offered free recycling of old Macs and PCs for free for those purchasing a new Mac and for a US$30 fee for those not purchasing a new Mac. Now regardless of whether you buy a new Mac or not, Apple will recycle your old Mac, PC, and monitors for free.
Apple has also added the iPhone and iPad to the Apple Gift Card Trade-In program. The program originally let users trade in an old Mac or PC desktop or laptop and receive a "fair market value" amount for the computer via an Apple Gift Card for use in any Apple retail store or Apple's online store. Now Apple is adding the ability to trade in iPhones and iPads for gift cards as well. Apple partners with PowerOn who pays for the trade-in (and later resells the used machines). If a trade-in is deemed to have no value, Apple will recycle the Mac, PC, iPad, or iPhone free of charge.

This is good right? Itll make it easier to switch over to the new iPhone right?

Hmm...there's a few old Winders PCs in my Dad's office that he might want to give up (keep the hard drives of course, they have Linux on them).
If anything, store credit would be nice to have, I'm always shopping for accessories. iPad Air 2 - iOS 9 Beta

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
