Electronics and Appliances Recycling at Best Buy

 

 

 

Best Buy offers the most comprehensive appliance and electronics recycling programs in the United States, and consumers recycle more appliances and electronics with Best Buy than any other retailer. We collect more than 400 pounds of product for recycling every minute our stores are open — no matter what retailer the products were purchased from.

 

Recycling is intended for residents only. Products from businesses and organizations, or items that present a health or safety hazard are not accepted. Please Visit BestBuy.com/Recycle for State-specific recycling information.
