This service, provided by Apple and PowerON, a California-based reseller of used and refurbished computers, is completely free of charge. Simply visit the Apple Reuse and Recycling Program website, select what kind of device you want to recycle (any desktop, notebook, iPad, or iPhone), and then fill in a few details about the device. For Windows desktops the only factors seem to be the case size and the processor speed; for laptops, the screen size and processor speed. For Apple products you need to select the exact model. On the next page you provide a few details about the condition of the computer: Does it boot up? Is it scratched? Can you can provide the original driver/OS disc? And so on. You’ll then be given an estimated fair market value — or if the device is too old or in bad condition, you’ll simply be told that it’s worth nothing (but you can still recycle it for free).
So that's pretty good, but not satisfying as Amazon has a trade-in service too, and it covers a much broader range of products, from electronics to books to DVDs. You get Amazon Gift Cards, too, which are far more useful than Apple Gift Cards. So why not give that a try?
