Here’s how Best Buy is making it easy to recycle your old tech

November 15 is America Recycles Day. Celebrate by bringing your old electronics to Best Buy, the largest retail collector of e-waste in the United States.

We established our recycling program in 2009 and have since recycled more than 2 billion pounds of electronics and appliances. We want to make recycling easy to do, because keeping those products out of landfills benefits the planet and our communities.

It’s part of our commitment to environmental sustainability. In addition to our recycling efforts, we’ve also pledged to be carbon neutral across our business by 2040.

We’ve ranked in the top five on Barron’s list of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies in America for three straight years, ranking No. 1 twice.
