Recycle Your Old Electronics at Best Buy for Free





Do you have any old electronics laying around the house that you no longer use,  but don't know how to recycle?

Did you know that you can take them to Best Buy for free and they will dispose of them safely and responsibly?

It's true.  I take my old printers, radios, computers, etc. there all of the time.  I even took my aunt there when she moved and wanted to recycle her old printer.  It is such an easy process.  It takes only a few minutes.  You can just drop off your recyclable electronic item and leave.  This can be done in every Best Buy location in the US and Puerto Rico.  It doesn't have to be an item that was purchased at Best Buy either.   It doesn't even matter how old it is. They will accept any electronic item from anywhere that you want to discard.

Best Buy recycles 387 pounds of electronics every minute that they are open.  They realize how quickly technology changes and want to do their part by being part of the solution in the fast growing waste stream.

While dropping off your old electronics, you should check out all of the Energy Efficient Energy Star items available at Best Buy.

  1. What an awesome program. we've been trying to decide what to do with some broken video game equipment for a while. right now it's just taking up space, but I could definitely drop it by best buy. it's pretty convenient to us here.

  2. This info couldn't have come at a better time - I have a broken laptop and a super old camcorder that I was thinking of getting rid of. Since Best Buy is just down the street this will be easy! Thanks!

  3. I'm so happy to hear this. A local group has been petitioning Walmart to do the same without success so far. Kudos to Best Buy! I already shop there but this reinforces my decision to spend my money at a company that is being socially responsible.
