Apple has filed a lawsuit against former recycling partner GEEP Canada (part of the larger firm Quantum Lifecycle Partners), accusing it of stealing and reselling at least 103,845 recyclable devices (iPhone, iPad and Watch). As follows from the lawsuit, “at least 11,766 pounds (5.34 tons) of Apple devices left GEEP in the same form – this is not denied even in GEEP itself,” reports The Logic.
According to the source, between January 2015 and December 2017, Apple sent 531,966 iPhones, 5,673 iPads and 19,277 Watch smartwatches to GEEP Canada for recycling. During the audit, Apple surprisingly found that 18% of these scrapped devices continue to work on the networks of various cellular operators. This number does not include non-cellular models, so many more devices that are intended for recycling could potentially be resold.
Apple is seeking compensation in the amount of about $ 22.7 million. GEEP Canada admits that the devices were actually stolen and resold, but refuses to plead guilty, accusing three employees of theft who acted independently of the company. But Apple does not believe GEEP Canada was involved, arguing that the three employees are in the company’s senior management at the recycling company.
Apple filed a lawsuit against GEEP Canada in January 2020, but it established the alleged theft between 2017 and 2018. Since then, Apple has ended its partnership with GEEP Canada.
