06 Jan: Best Buy Takes EPA Gold Award for E-Recycling Performance

On Saturday, Best Buy will accept distinctive U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) honors as part of sustainability events at CES in Las Vegas.

The EPA will name Best Buy a Gold Tier Award Winner in its Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Program, the third straight year we’ve received this recognition.

The award commends superior corporate efforts to divert electronics from landfills by working with third-party certified recyclers, as well as being transparent about recycling data and performance.

Since 2009, Best Buy has voluntarily operated the most comprehensive e-waste recycling service in the U.S.
