We get to relieve consumers of their unwanted iPhones and prevent hazardous waste from entering landfills by recycling rechargeable batteries.
Olathe, KS (PRWEB) August 4, 2008
As millions of gadget lovers buy Apple's new 3G iPhones, millions are left wondering what to do with their old iPhones. Even if an iPhone is not functioning, iResQ, a company that repairs iPhones, iPods, and Apple computers, salvages used iPhones.
In order to receive a quote, owners of used iPhones can fill out an iPhone purchase form on iResQ's website.
After sending contact information, the iPhone type, the physical condition and any existing problems, iResQ will then contact the individual to offer a current purchase price. All contacts and stored data will be destroyed to prevent future access.
"This buyback program serves a twofold purpose," says Brian Buffington, iResQ's general manager. "We get to relieve consumers of their unwanted iPhones and prevent hazardous waste from entering landfills by recycling rechargeable batteries."
iResQ is partnered with The Rechargable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), which assists in recycling the thousands of used batteries iResQ receives each month. As a participant in its "Call2Recycle" program, iResQ separates the used batteries and sends them to the RBRC, where their primary components can be reclaimed to make new rechargeable batteries and stainless steel products.
iResQ also refurbishes quality parts of the unwanted iPhones to repair other iPhones. The rest of the unwanted iPhone parts are also sent to RBRC for reusing or repurposing.
Again, owners looking to sell a used or broken unit can fill out iResQ's iPhone purchase form.
