2 Lenovo Trade-In Programs

Did you know Lenovo has a Trade-In Program?  Instead of throwing away old devices, Lenovo will either reuse or recycle them. Any Lenovo device or PC laptop, or Apple device may be eligible for the program.

Quickly discover if your device is eligible from the website by searching for it or looking at the list.
If it is not on the list does not qualify.
If your product qualifies for reuse - meaning it has monetary value - you'll receive payment equivalent to its fair market value as determined by Lenovo's partner, PowerON Services, Inc. If your product does not have monetary value, they'll recycle it at no cost to you.
