Smartphone giant Apple Inc. has finally launched its popular iPhone trade-in program to retail stores in Canada.

Apple’s Reuse and Recycling program began in the U.S. during summer 2013, but now Canadian consumers can sell older handsets back to Apple in exchange for credit toward a new model.

Users can receive a store credit of up to $275, depending on the condition of their iPhone. The program is also intended to allow users with iPhones that don’t work to recycle their devices in an environmentally responsible way, Apple announced.

“In addition to helping support the environment, customers will be able to receive a credit for their returned phone that they can use toward the purchase of a new iPhone,” Apple said in a March 11, 2014 announcement.

Apple is currently working on a new iPhone, expected to be released in fall 2014.
