Go green to save green

Recycle your old technology at the Microsoft retail store.

To get started, simply bring your computer, phone, or other device to the Answer Desk at the Microsoft retail store. We will appraise its value based on condition and current market value. If it’s determined to have value,* we will provide you with a Microsoft retail store credit.* If it doesn’t have value, we will wipe it of all data and safely recycle it for you. The process is fast, easy, and free of charge.

Devices accepted:

  • Qualifying laptops and tablets.
  • Cellular phones.
  • Digital-audio players.
  • Video-game consoles and games.
