Apple lowers Cdn payouts for iPhone recycling

Apple has lowered how much it will pay in-store to recycle your old iPhone in Canada.

When the tech giant’s Reuse and Recycling program launched in Canada during early 2014, sellers could expect up to $275 in trade-in credit. Now, the company has quietly maxed out the recycling pricing at $225.

Using Apple’s online system, however, could still fetch market users as much as $255 for good condition iPhone 5 units.

After Apple launched its Reuse and Recycling program in the US over 2011—2012, the company expanded it to Canada, the UK, as well as France and Germany.
