The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) named Best Buy a Gold Tier Award Winner at the agency’s National Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Program Electronics Challenge ceremonies in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
The EPA distinction recognizes our commitment to electronics recycling, transparent management practices and consumer education throughout 2014. In that year alone, we sent 61,000 tons of electronics to certified recyclers. Recycling that amount is equal to taking 31,000 passenger vehicles off the road for a whole year.
Our recycling program is a key part of a larger Best Buy product stewardship story.
