Best Buy Electronics Recycling Program To Launch February 15

Best Buy, one of the last standing consumer electronics chains in the U.S., will be launching its electronics recycling program on Feb. 15, 2009 at all of its 1,006 stores nationwide, and in Puerto Rico sometime in 2010.  Consumers are encouraged to bring up to two units per day, per household, for recycling at any U.S. Best Buy store, including consumer electronics like TVs and monitors up to 32”, computer CPUs and notebooks, small electronics, VCRs, DVD players, cellphones, and accessories such as keyboards, mice, and remote controls.

A $10 recycling fee per unit will be charged for items with screens, including televisions, laptops, and monitors,  but you will instantly receive a $10 Best Buy gift card in exchange for the recycling fee.

The following items cannot be accepted through this program:

  • Televisions or monitor screens greater than 32”
  • Console televisions
  • Items containing Freon, including air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and mini-refrigerators (consumers are encouraged to contact their state/county sold waste department for recycling options)
  • Microwaves
  • Appliances (customers are invited instead to use Best Buy’s appliance haul-away and pick-up programs)
