iPad Reuse & Recycling program extends to France, Germany

updated 01:02 pm EDT, Mon May 19, 2014

Current-generation iPads still excluded

Apple has expanded its iPad Reuse & Recycling program to France and Germany, local reports say. When the initiative first launched on Earth Day -- April 22nd -- it was restricted to Canada and the US. Given Apple's history with the iPhone version of the program, the UK is likely next in expansion efforts.

As in North America, the French and German programs will only accept second-, third-, and fourth-generation 9.7-inch iPads, and first-generation iPad minis. People should also be able to apply credit from an iPhone trade-in, but shoppers aren't allowed to bring in two iPhones or two iPads during a single exchange.

    When, please tell me, is the tech media going to start covering what happens to the iPads and iPhones after they're repurchased? What percentage still be used for their original purposes (reuse), and what percentage are wastefull being 'recycled' into pop cans and milk cartons? Environmentally, there's a world of difference between the two. Judging by their news stories, in the tech press, there apparently isn't.
