I discovered this recycling program today while looking through the Apple Store at refurbished items. Which, by the way is another great way to buy Apple products at a discount!
Apple will evaluate your used Apple electronics. They will either give you a gift card in the amount they value your item at, or they will recycle it for you at no charge. Either way it's a win-win!
Here is what their website says:
Get an Apple Store Gift Card for the value of your old device.Turn that iPhone, iPad, or computer — Mac or PC — you’re not using anymore into something brand new. Send it to us and we’ll determine if it qualifies for reuse. If it does, that means your device has monetary value that we’ll apply to an Apple Store Gift Card, which you can use for purchases at any Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store. If your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or PC doesn’t qualify for reuse, we’ll recycle it responsibly at no cost to you.

Ta ta for now...save money!
