Purchase An Apple Computer, Recycle Your Old Computer

Apple's commitment to being a responsible environmental citizen includes working to ensure that electronic equipment is properly disposed of at the end of its useful life. Apple's free computer recycling program makes it easy for you to play a role in helping to protect the environment.

Purchase. When you purchase any qualifying Apple computer or monitor from either a retail Apple Store or the online Apple Store, you now have the option to participate in the Apple Recycling program.

1 - Opt in. When you make a purchase through the online Apple Store, you will be given the opportunity to opt into the Apple Recycling Program. For the retail Apple Store, a Mac Specialist will offer the option to participate at the point of sale.

2 - Print the email. After you opt in, Apple will send you an email with instructions on how to recycle your old equipment for free. For online Apple Store customers, the email will be sent once your new equipment ships. Print out this email, as you'll need it later.

3 - Package. Package your recycled computer and monitor in a box or carton appropriate for ground transportation. Must be packed to ensure product will not shift or break. You must place CPUs and monitors into two separate boxes. Securely seal each box. Weight limit per package is less than 70 lbs. For ground packaging guidelines, see

4 - Take to FedEx. Take the equipment, packaged for ground transportation, and a printed copy of the Apple Recycling email to a FedEx location. To find the FedEx location nearest you, please visit
