Reclycling at Best Buy

Last week, I mentioned using Bagsters versus Dumpsters for disposal.  One of the items we needed to "toss", was a TV.  Calling Waste Management, you can't put those in Bagsters or Dumpsters.  You need to call locally for a recycling center that may take them.  But….the person I talked to at Waste Management, informed me about a program that Best Buy has.


Regardless of where you bought any electronics (TV, DVD players, home or car audio, cell phones, MP3 players, cables, Computers (hard drive removed by you or them), small electronics, fans, vacuums etc), you can bring them in to Best Buy to recycle them.  It's part of their "Greener Together" Program.    


You can bring in up to three items per household per day.  They'll charge you $10 for TV's and monitors, but you immediately receive a $10 Best Buy gift card toward a future purchase!  And, you can trust them to safely dispose of the old electronics.

They don't take computer hard drives or TV's larger than 32". But you can use their haul away or pickup programs for those.  They also don't take electronics containing refrigerants, like mini-refrigerators or air conditioners.  For regular appliances, you can also use the haul away or pickup program.

They also have free recycling kiosks just inside the door to drop off inkjet cartridges, rechargeable batteries, CDs/DVDs and gift cards.

What a GREAT program from a Minnesota Company!

Now….where do I bring the large window air conditioner to….hmmmmm.
