Best Buy Expands Electronics Recycling
Best Buy has launched a test of its newest electronics recycling program to in 117 U.S. stores in the Baltimore, San Francisco, and Minnesota areas.
Under the program customers may bring in up to two electronics devices and peripherals such as televisions and monitors up to 32″, computers, phones, and cameras, per day, to be recycled.
Best Buy says that, while the test will allow it to evaluate options for making the program available at its stores across the U.S., it continues to offer free recycling for ink cartridges, rechargeable batteries, cell phones, CDs, DVDs, PDAs and other items in all of its stores in the U.S.
Through Best Buy’s combined programs, U.S. consumers recycled more than 30,000 tons of e-waste (appliances and consumer electronics) in fiscal 2007, and many other major retailers have started or expanded initiatives to encourage the increase of electronics recycling.
