iPhone Reuse and Recycle program expands into France

updated 10:24 am EST, Mon March 3, 2014

Canadian expansion still in the wings

The iPhone Reuse and Recycle program has been extended into France, Apple has confirmed. The program lets people trade in an older iPhone towards the purchase of a new one. It debuted in the US last year, and has since spread to the UK and (in modified form) India. French iPhone owners are promised "up to €215" ($296) for trade-ins.

Late last month a report suggested that Apple is on the verge of starting trade-ins at Canadian stores. The company has allegedly already begun training, and could roll out the program in Canada by the end of March.

    I'm more impressed when people give that old iPhone to a friend/relative or perhaps sell it to someone locally. When Apple buys that phone, it either gets yanked off the market to encourage new sales or it gets passed to a retailer who charges more.

    Imagine how much more recycling a nuclear-powered iPhone battery could be for France.
