Our ambition

to recycle

IQOS devices

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.

Heard of
“e-waste”?


E-waste is electronic waste. Anything with a plug, cord, or electronic component including  your IQOS device. ​

So, when you return your old IQOS device to us for recycling, you help to reduce e-waste.

Our impact so far


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

In 2021, 63% of devices sold worldwide were included in our recycling program, and that figure continues to rise.

You can join in too, since the Czech and Slovak markets were added to the device recycling program in 2021 – all you have to do is bring any IQOS that you no longer use to one of our stores.

Making the difference. Together.
