Apple starts recycling program

We previously covered “Apple’s last place”:http://duenos.net/article/120/greenpeace-releases-latest-green-electronics-rankings environmental record, and then the subsequent “green statement”:http://duenos.net/article/266/AGreenerApple from Steve Jobs, but it seems there is more. Apple announced last week that they were to start a school computer recycling program. Any school (k-12, University, College, etc…) with more than 25 computers to recycle, Macs or PCs, could sign up. After scheduling a pick-up, the rest of the work would be done by Apple who are, it seems, asking for nothing in return. There’s more about this story at “The Apple Insider”:http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/07/05/18/apple_offers_green_take_backs_for_old_school_computers.html.
