Best Buy Offers New Option for Consumer Electronics Recycling

April 5, 2023

Best Buy Co. Inc. is making it even easier for customers to responsibly dispose of electronic waste.

The consumer electronics giant, which says it is the nation’s largest retail collector of e-waste, is introducing a new nationwide program that allows consumers to recycle their old tech by mail. It follows the April 2022 launch of a program for picking up consumer electronics for recycling at customers’ homes.

Starting in April 2023, customers can order a prepaid Best Buy technology recycling box and use it to ship off old electronics items for recycling. Through the service, Best Buy will refurbish and resell items, or recycle them if they cannot be resold.

"We continue to build on our commitment to be there for our customers throughout the entire lifecycle of their products by making recycling simple and convenient,” said Tim Dunn, Best Buy head of environmental sustainability. “Sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do and this new service is another step we are taking to protect the planet today and for future generations.”
