Apple’s new recycling program is apparently making it easier for customers to get their recycling bins back from Apple stores.
Apple said today that it has rolled out the new recycling service, which will be available in select Apple retail stores beginning this week.
The Apple Recycling Service (ARS) will help customers retrieve recyclables from Apple’s retail stores and select online retailers like Amazon, Costco, and Target.
Customers will be able to order a recycling bin at the checkout, and then the bin will be loaded onto the Apple Watch, which then allows customers to retrieve their recyclable material and return it to the recycling bin.
ARS will be enabled for all Apple stores in select states, with a full rollout expected later this month.
For customers outside of Apple, Apple will still provide the recycling service.
Apple said the service will be accessible at Apple retail locations in North America, and at select Apple stores nationwide, but not in select markets.
The service is expected to roll out in other regions in the next few weeks.
Apple is expected start providing recycling bins at Apple stores beginning in the second half of 2018.
