There comes a time in every gadget / cell phone / TV ‘s life, where they are outdated and unusable, and frankly, just taking up space in your home. When that time comes it is up to you to make a responsible decision as to how to dispose of that item. Did you know that technology is the fastest growing waste stream on the entire planet? Well, I guess it makes sense because it seems like a new gadget is coming out every single day.
That where Best Buy Recycle comes in, as the world’s largest retailer of consumer electronics they are helping to be part of the solution. You can take your unwanted electronics into your local Best Buy (yep, every single location accepts items and even some Best Buy Mobile stores) and they will responsibly and safely dispose of your old electronics at absolutely no cost to you. It doesn’t even matter where you purchased that item or how old the item is, every single Best Buy will accept it.
Curious how it works? Well, with the smaller items such as ink and toner, rechargeable batteries, wires and cables, and cell phones you just drop the items into the recycling kiosks that are located just inside the front doors at Best Buy. With the larger items like TV’s (under 32 inches accepted in stores), computers, DVD / VHS players you would just take the item over to the customer service desk and they will properly dispose of your item for you… for FREE. For a full list of the items that Best Buy accepts please check out their recycling site for more information.
