Can You Recycle Apple Computers?

There seems to be a never ending battle in the Buy IT Back office about Apple vs Microsoft (or Android) tech. The trendy designer types amongst us simply love their Mac’s, whereas anyone who wasn’t born with an inbuilt knowledge of InDesign tend to love their Microsoft or Google products.

But whatever you preference, there is often the same issue to overcome when it’s time to upgrade to the latest product – what do you do with your old Apple equipment? Can you recycle old Apple computers?

Apple themselves offer a Trade-In scheme which promises that you can trade in your eligible product for credit off your next purchase, or an Apple gift card. However, the key word here is ‘eligible’. According to their website you could get up to £610 for a MacBook Pro, but one would imagine that this may only be possible for a MacBook that you bought one day, didn’t even take out of the box and then traded in the day after! Although we haven’t tested this premise and so can’t say for sure 🙂

Apple will also offer to recycle any of their products that aren’t eligible for trade-in for free, which is certainly better than them ending up on landfill. However is this really the best option for you, if you are looking to recycle your old Apple tech?

Here at Buy IT Back we are completely committed to ensuring that as little unwanted IT equipment goes to landfill as possible, and so if Apple’s official trade-in or recycling scheme is the right choice for you then that’s great. However, especially with older equipment or that which is broken or not running correctly, it might just be worth giving us a shout before you go down the official Apple route. 

In many cases Buy IT Back are able to offer you a higher price through our buy back scheme than you would get from Apple, and we can also help you to recycle any other unwanted IT or telecoms equipment too.

So next time you are looking to recycle Apple computers or other tech, contact Buy IT Back and see just how much your unwanted Apple equipment could be worth.
