How do we recycle IQOS

We want to play our role in reducing waste of used devices and our device return and recycling initiatives are a part of this plan.

It all starts when you bring back your used IQOS device to us.

We will recycle it into something new or will recover the energy from its materials.

Together we can make a difference.

What is the best way to recycle electronic devices?

Heard of e-waste? E-waste is electronic waste. Anything with a plug, cord, or electronic component including your IQOS device. But how do you recycle old electronic devices?

The best way to recycle your IQOS device is to return it back to us. We will then either recycle or refresh it, giving it a second chance and help reduce e-waste.

Our impact so far


We’re working towards increasing the number of used IQOS devices that get recycled.

In 2020, 48% of our IQOS markets were covered under our recycling programme and we’ll continue to roll this out.

You can play your part by returning your old IQOS device and we’ll take care of the rest.

Making the difference. Together.
