Most people are pretty eager to get the latest of the shiny electronic gadgets as soon as they come out. Apple is now encouraging that rush, but with an eco-friendly twist: they’re now offering gift cards in exchange for your old electronics.

Apple’s Reuse and Recycling Program will recycle any device and, if it’s not particularly ancient, will issue a gift card equivalent to the item’s worth. They explain on their website, “Turn that iPhone, iPad, or computer — Mac or PC — you’re not using anymore into something brand new. Send it to us and we’ll determine if it qualifies for reuse. If it does, that means your device has monetary value that we’ll apply to an Apple Store Gift Card, which you can use for purchases at any Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store. If your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or PC doesn’t qualify for reuse, we’ll recycle it responsibly at no cost to you.”

Apple contracts with PowerON, a California-based reseller of used and refurbished Macintosh hardware and software. They’ll issue the fair market price for your old item and will also send you a convenient shipping package.

Get the full details on how the program works on Apple’s website.
