You’ve got yourself a shiny brand new iPhone – but what do you do with your old iPhone?
No matter how fond we grow of our iPhones, there comes a time in every smartphone owner’s life when it’s time to bite the bullet and opt for an upgrade. And that poses the question of what to do with your outdated handset. Here’s what you need to know about iPhone recycling and how to safely dispose of your old iPhone.
iPhones: Not for the Regular Trash
As tempting as it is to dump old iPhones, these devices do not belong in the regular trash. Electronic waste, or e-waste, can leak harmful chemicals into the environment, so you don’t want it sitting in a landfill. Unlike regular trash and recycling, you can’t put your e-waste out for curbside pickup, so proper disposal will vary depending on where you live.
Shred Your Old iPhone
The best solution for getting rid of your old iPhone is through secure media shredding. Your data is guaranteed to be safe and irretrievable when the storage components are shredded and the scrap is recycled.
A dedicated shredder can guarantee complete destruction of electronic media. You can rest easy and have peace of mind that your identity is safe and secure. Let Legal Shred help with your cell phone shredding needs.
