Not ready for a new device yet?

You can still exchange your old one. We will then transfer the equivalent value to you and recycle your old device.

Select your device to have the trade-in value estimated, even without a purchase.1

And it helps

to protect the planet.

Even if you hand in your old device, someone else may still be able to use it. If it is in good condition, we will find new owners and thus reduce electronic waste in the landfill. If not, we will send it to our recycling partner in order to reclaim valuable materials - and to get fewer new ones from the earth.

If it's an iPhone, it could even end up on Daisy. This is our dismantling robot that efficiently recovers the raw materials in old devices.3
