Free Electronics Recycling Program at Best Buy
Getting shiny new appliances and electronics can be very exciting – for me at least! We are in a day and age of technology, and many of us like to be on the brink of it with the latetst and greatest. When you stick that new 50″ HDTV on the wall and turn on the big game, there can be a lot of excitement. Or perhaps it’s The Bachelor, instead of the big game. I mean, who doesn’t like getting new stuff anyway? The question is, what do you do with that old grungy television and your other replaceable electronics? I have a solution for you! If you bring your electronics to Best Buy, they will responsibly and safely dispose of them.
I had no idea how big the electronics recycling program at Best Buy is. If you are like me, then you might have guessed that Best Buy charges a fee for recycling your electronics, but you’d be wrong. Best Buy’s industry-leading recycling efforts are available for free in every Best Buy location in Puerto Rico and the U.S. How awesome is that? With technology being the fastest growing waste stream on the planet, and Best Buy one of the world’s largest retailer of consumer electronics, they want to be part of the solution.
Aside from the fact that you can recycle your electronics for free, another bonus is that no matter where you bought it or how old it is, Best Buy will recycle it! A fun fact: Best Buy recycles 387 pounds of electronics each minute their stores are open. That is a lot of you combine that with each store that is participating.
I’d love to hear if you have had any experiences recycling at Best Buy!
Of course, if you are heading to Best Buy to recycle an old gadget, why not do a little shopping while you’re there? I don’t think I’d be able to help but at least go inside and look around. When I shop for my new stuff these days, I like to look for Energy Star certified products, to help me save on my monthly bills. Best Buy can help with that too! Recycle your old electronics and upgrade to more energy efficient ones. Learn more about Best Buy’s Energy Star certified products and visit Best Buy’s recycling page to learn more about the program.
