Apple iPhone  5Consumers looking to trade in their old iPhones will be able to do so starting now. On Friday, CNBC confirmed that Apple’s iPhone trade-in program — which the company has dubbed the iPhone Reuse and Recycle Program — is launching at Apple retailers starting today.

According to 9to5Mac, the program will accept trade-ins on the iPhone 3G up to the current iPhone 5 model, and customers will receive a gif card for based on the determined value of the device. Once the phones have been traded in, Apple will turn them over to BrightStar for recycling.

It’s worth noting that Apple has not set any standard trade-in values, so prices can fluctuate between retailers, making it difficult to calculate exactly how much an iPhone is worth. Still, the extra cash may be worth it for users looking to get their hands on Apple’s next-generation iPhone 5S, which is expected to be announced on September 10 and released on September 20.
