Apple is suing a Canadian recycling company for more than $22 million claiming it re-sold more than 100,000 devices instead of disposing of the products as it had been hired to, according to recent reports.

The Tim Cook-led tech giant sued GEEP Canada in January alleging that GEEP, which is now owned by Quantum Lifecycle Partners LP, had stolen at least 18% of the more than 575,000 Apple products that it was hired to recycle, AppleInsider.com reported, citing The Logic. The court papers were recently made public, according to the report.

Apple is seeking $31 million, or $22.7 million U.S. dollars, court filings confirm, in addition to any profits recovered as a result of the resales.
