Best Buy Expands Recycling Initiative

Minneapolis Best Buy Co. will bring its electronics recycling program Feb. 15 to all of its 1,006 stores nationwide. The program will expand sometime in fiscal 2010 to Puerto Rico stores.

Under the terms of the program, consumers can bring up to two units per day, per household, for recycling at any U.S. Best Buy store. The chain will accept most consumer electronics, including televisions and monitors up to 32 inches, computer CPUs and notebooks, small electronics, VCR and DVD players and phones, as well as accessories such as keyboards, mice and remotes.

A $10 recycling fee per unit will be charged for items with screens, such as televisions, laptop computers, and monitors. The consumer will instantly receive a $10 Best Buy gift card in exchange for the recycling fee.
