Best Buy trying to woo customers with technology recycling

On Tuesday, Best Buy announced its plans to test drive a new electronics recycling program at 117 of the company’s stores throughout America. The company already has an e-waste management program in place at all of its existing retail outlets, but the current program largely caters to small devices, such as cell phones, batteries, or ink jet cartridges. Television or appliance recycling, while still available, is tied to the purchase and delivery of a new unit.

Under the new program, consumers will be able to recycle up to two electronic devices per household, per day, at one of the 117 participating stores. Eligible items include televisions and monitors (32″ or smaller), computers, phones, cameras, and a miscellaneous “other electronics devices and peripherals” category. The new program is broader, but still retains certain limitations. Console televisions, Air conditioners, TV’s greater than 32″, large appliances, microwaves, llamas over five feet in height, and washed-up presidential candidates are all off limits, though Best Buy does note that customers are welcome to contact the store and arrange for appliance removal. Participating stores are located in Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota, Wisconsin, Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, and California; (link)
