Any phone or tablet computer that is broken beyond repair is recycled for no charge through an EPA-registered facility.

“Consumers and businesses are realizing today that when they purchase a new cell phone, they can exchange their old one for significant trade-in value,” said Christopher Irion, founder and chief executive officer of e-Cycle. “This is especially important when it comes to used iPhones and iPads because these high-end products are still very valuable. At the same time, they contain enormous amounts of personal information. e-Cycle helps iPhone and iPad users recover the value from their devices without ever exposing their information. The program is an easy way for consumers and businesses to sell their iPhones or iPads.”

The online iPhone/iPad buyback program marks e-Cycle’s first service designed especially for consumers.
