A couple of months ago I put out a Facebook message to my local friends. Where do I recycle my printer that no longer works?
Though sometimes the easy thing for us to do is throw them in the garbage can, it is worth our time to dispose of them properly.
Best Buy has a great recycling program that I am learning about. Click on that link and you will find tons of useful info…
First, Best Buy will recycle any electronic – tvs, cameras, computers, appliances, and so much more – for FREE. It does not matter that you didn’t originally buy it there and it can be 30 years old and they’ll still take it.
Second, even small items like ink cartridges, cables, and batteries can be brought in. The stores have a drop box right as you walk in! Do your batteries pile up at your house? They do at ours. I was buying rechargeable for awhile, but the kids just end up losing them so I’ve backed out of that idea for a bit.
Third, they will come haul away your old electronics when they are delivering your new ones. This is such a great service. For your next product you may want to check out the ones marked with the Energy Star. Save you energy and money!
Fourth, do you have gently used items you no longer need? Bring them to Best Buy and trade them for a Best Buy Gift Card. My boys are going to be all over this with their video game stuff.
Impressed? I am!
Best Buy recycles 387 pounds of electronics each minute their stores are open. WOW!
I know where I will be headed the next time I have a load. What about you?
Have you used Best Buy for recycling before?
The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
