The Fixi Shop Now Promoting Recycling iPads Rather Than Replacing Them

(Arlington, TX, Aug. 12, 2013) — Representatives with The Fixi Shop announced today that it has started a campaign asking Apple users to start recycling or reusing their iPad rather than replacing it.

Steve Pena, head mechanic and spokesman for The Fixi Shop, said the company, which has storefronts in Arlington and Fort Worth, is in support of Apple’s overall recycle and reuse program, and is asking its customers to join in.

“Besides the fact that recycling makes our world a better place, Apple finds efficient ways to reuse and recycle electronic equipment, including iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC computers, and displays,” Pena said.

Pena went on to explain that The Fixi Shop wants to do what it can for the environment while encouraging others to do the same.

“It’s the little things that we do that can make a huge difference in our overall quality of life, and recycling or reusing iPads and other gadgets can have a significant impact on the universe,” Pena said.

Pena pointed out that when Apple owners team up with The Fixi Shop and recycle in support of Apple’s recycle and reuse program, their used equipment is disassembled, and key components that can be reused are removed.

As to why recycle, Pena said, glass and metal used on all iPads can be reprocessed for use in new products.

In addition, Pena noted, a majority of the plastics can be pelletized into a raw secondary material.

“Our involvement in spreading the word about recycling iPads shows our commitment to minimizing the impact products have on the environment,” Pena said, before adding, “It offers you a way to dispose of your electronic equipment responsibly.”
