Apple claims GEEP Canada employees hid Apple devices out of view of an e-scrap facility’s cameras, mislabeled devices as “copper bearings” for outbound shipping, and then received kickbacks for illegally reselling them.
Apple recycled more than 100 million pounds of its devices last year, and it used 10% recycled or renewable materials across its product line. The company released the details in its annual sustainability report.
