Apple Computer has announced today that they’re expanding their recycling program, previously just offered to iPod owners, to their computers as well. When you buy a new computer, they will take an old one back and dispose of it in an environmentally friendly way.

Equipment received by the program in the US is recycled domestically and no hazardous material is shipped overseas. Earlier this week, Apple was named a “Forward Green Leader,” one of the top ten environmentally progressive companies recognized by the Sierra Club and its investment advisor, Forward Management.

Yet another very good reason to be proud to use Apple products.
