Best Buy has now recycled 1 billion pounds of electronic and large appliance waste in just six years, according to Electronic Recyclers International.
At an event commemorating the retailer’s accomplishment, Best Buy revealed a number of statistics and data it gathered in a nationwide survey surrounding consumers and e-waste, ERI says. Among the statistics revealed: 39 percent of consumers recycle their electronics and appliances now, but nearly twice as many (70 percent) intend to do so in the future.
At the event Best Buy also announced a new goal to collect another 2 billion pounds of electronics and appliances for recycling in the next six years.
