Recycling Your Amazon Device

Amazon recognizes the importance of recycling electronic equipment at the end of its useful life, which is why we offer both the option to trade-in your device and a recycling program for electronic items including Amazon devices and accessories. In some areas, the disposal of rechargeable batteries and certain electronic devices is regulated, so please make sure you dispose of Amazon devices, accessories and batteries in accordance with your local laws and regulations.

Before submitting a device for Trade-In or recycling, we recommend that you (i) perform a factory reset in order to remove any of your personal content from the applicable device(s) and (ii) deregister the device(s) from your account. We also recommend that back up your applicable device(s) before performing the factory reset if you want to restore your settings on another compatible Amazon device.

Trade-In Your Device

The Amazon Trade-In program allows customers to receive an Gift Card in exchange for thousands of eligible items, including Amazon devices and non-Amazon devices. Even non-working devices are eligible. Visit the Amazon Trade-In storefront to see what options might be available for you to receive an Gift Card for trading in your device by following this link:
