A listing on the Jobs at Apple site reveals the company is looking to bring its Reuse and Recycling Program to emerging markets in the Asia-Pacific and Latin America-Caribbean regions. Based on the job description, Apple’s Corporate Recycling Team is seeking a Reuse (Trade-In) Worldwide Program Manager to work on current and future “Global Reuse (Trade-In) Programs for Apple Online Store, Education, Retail and the Reseller Channel.”
The Reuse and Recycling listing discovered recently also notes the candidate is responsible for the development and implementation of programs in APAC (Asia-Pacific) and ALAC (Latin America-Caribbean) similar to the current Reuse and Recycling initiative found in countries like the US and UK. In addition, the position will be in charge of enhancing EMEIA as well (Europe, Middle East, India and Africa) along with its North America operations.
The Cupertino California company also hinted at the possibility of looking to broaden the scope of existing programs saying the following:
Scaling these programs to keep Apple on the leading edge of this emerging mega trend is a priority.
For those of you who didn’t know, Apple’s Reuse and Recycling Program was first introduced in August of 2012, when the company partnered with PowerON to buy back used iPhones, iPads and Macs. The service was recently expanded to include devices with water damage earlier this week, meaning owners of iPhones or iPads with activated liquid contact indicators can now trade in their device.
