Did you know that technology is the fastest growing waste stream on Earth? By recycling our electronics we conserve natural resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Many people don’t recycle their retired computers and gadgets merely because they don’t know how or where to do so. Best Buy’s recycling program makes it easy and convenient to recycle just about any and all electronics, so there is no reason to ever throw them away again.
Best Buy will recycle your old electronics, for free, no matter where you purchased them. The program is available in all states and Puerto Rico, however since some states have a few restrictions, you can find all the details on every type of electronic in every state on the Best Buy Recycling page.
