Apple in more recent years has become one of the more popular brands in the electrical and IT marketplace. Apple Mac recycling in recent years has been made easier with the adoption of Apple’s green initiative.
Many of the dangerous chemicals we all want to eliminate from electronic products are found in very small amounts, but there’s one toxic substance that is still prevalent in house holds in the UK, cathode-ray tube (CRT) displays. A typical CRT contains approximately 1.36 kg of lead. In mid-2006, Apple as part of the Mac recycling program became the first company in the computer industry to completely eliminate CRTs.
Apple is one of few manufacturers that offer a self-data wiping function; this can be done by following a few simple steps. Please note the following information should be used as a guide and may not work on all apple products or software.
