Second Life Mac encourages schools to turn in outdated devices

SKOKIE - In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, Second Life Mac is encouraging schools to properly dispose of outdated and unused edtech devices, some of which may still have value.

Second Life Mac, which buys pre-owned Apple devices from schools and enterprises, said it will take back end-of-lifecycle devices from schools during the month of April, even if they don't work.

Devices that have value will be refurbished, and data will be securely erased to Department of Defense standards before they are resold via wholesale and retail channels. Schools will be compensated for these devices. Devices with no value will be fully recycled, with zero waste in landfills.
