Recycle It at Apple
Apple offers a Reuse and Recycling Program. Any Apple products may be turned in to Apple stores for gift cards that can be used to purchase anything-- including a brand new phone. You'll just have to answer a few questions about your device at apple.com, ship it and within weeks your gift card will arrive.
Trade It In To Your Carrier
Cell phone carriers like Verizon and AT&T also offer recycling programs. At Verizon, you can receive store credit for your old phone or even donate it to HopeLine, a program that provides support to domestic violence victims. AT&T offers a similar trade-in program that provides a promotion card good towards the purchase of products and services.
