You can now turn in any Apple product at an Apple Store for free recycling

In line with Earth Day and as part of its latest environmental push, Apple has announced that it will take back any Apple product for free recycling.

Apple has already been giving gift cards in exchange for used iPhones, iPads and Macs that are in good enough condition to be resold, while those deemed to have no monetary value will be recycled for free. Now this reuse and recycling program has been extended to all Apple products.

As part of Tuesday’s Earth Day celebrations, Apple has greened some of the leaves of the logos at its retail stores and will have its employees wear green t-shirts.

Apple says that this also builds on the recycling programs it has set up in cities and college campuses in 95 percent of the countries where its products are sold. It claims that such programs, which take in non-Apple products too, have helped to keep out more than 421 million pounds of electronics from landfills since 1994.
