Apple has expanded its Reuse & Recycling Program to include eligible Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone devices. The program has been expanded in the United States and some European countries.
The new trade-in program provides customers with the option to mail in eligible non-Apple smartphones, including certain Samsung, HTC, LG, Nokia, Sony and BlackBerry models, for credit in the form of an Apple Store gift card or bank transfer.
Currently, customers in the U.S., United Kingdom, Italy, and France can take part in the program both online and in-store. Apple’s partner in the trade-in program is buyback and trade-in specialist Brightstar Corporation.
Non-Apple smartphones eligible for trade-in include: 8 Sony models, 22 Samsung models, 5 Nokia models, 4 BlackBerry models, 7 HTC models, and 9 LG models.
Apple is also accepting PCs made by certain manufacturers as part of the expanded program.
