Apple launches paid recycling scheme in the UK

Apple recycling

Apple has partnered with Dataserv to offer its own UK paid recycling service which lets you trade in any leftover iDevices and other gadgets (including laptops and desktops), for a bit of cash.

Our sister site has had a play around on Apple's Recycling site to see what it could get for a 16GB black iPhone 4, and the answer is a reasonably generous £177.

But says the same test on Mazuma Mobile revealed a much better reward of £205 (or a £225 Argos voucher), so it still pays to shop around to get the best deal.
