Have you ever gone through your house and collected all the electronic gadgets that you no longer use? If you have, I bet you were shocked at the number of items that you had. I know I sure was. Between the various cords and the CDs that were no longer being used, I had plenty of items that needed to be discarded. Throwing them away was not an option as I try to recycle as much as possible so instead, I stopped by my local Best Buy.
My curbside recycling service will only pick up certain things: paper, aluminum cans, etc. They won’t take many things that shouldn’t go into our landfills and that means I need to have a place that will take all of my electronic gadgets, regardless of where they were purchased. That’s where Best Buy comes in. I love that even if I don’t need to shop, I can drop off old cell phones, CDs/DVDs and even our old, Coleman Roadtrip propane grill for FREE. Yes, I said for free. Every Best Buy location in the US and Puerto Rico will take your old radar detectors, tv wall mounts and more, regardless of where you bought them. Since Best Buy’s business is consumer electronics, it only make sense that they are part of the solution when it comes to disposing of these items safely.
Did you know that:
- Best Buy recycles 387 lbs of electronics every MINUTE their stores are open.
- No matter where you bought it or how old it is, Best Buy will recycle it.
- If you bring your electronics to Best Buy, they will responsibly and properly dispose of it.
So the next time you’re facing a toaster that no longer works, instead of throwing it in the trash, drop it off at your local Best Buy. It costs you absolutely nothing but sure makes a big difference in our landfills and to our planet.
