Apple launches iPod recycling discount

Apple announced a iPod recycling program which will offer users a ten percent discount if they buy a new iPod at one of the company's 100 retail stores in the United States.

The move should appease critics of Apple's environmental record, who protested outside its headquarters during an annual shareholder meeting in April. Inside the meeting, a representative of an environmentally oriented mutual fund questioned Apple CEO Steve Jobs specifically about the Mac maker's recycling program.
