For most of us, recycling is part of our everyday lives. We gather paper, plastic and glass and reap the health, environmental and economic benefits to recycling.
But, recycling isn’t just about putting your newspapers and tin cans at the curb. You can recycle much more than that–just walk into your local Best Buy.
I wandered in to Best Buy one day to buy a gift card for my nephew and upon entering the store, I saw this…
I couldn’t believe all of the items they took for recycling!
-Wires, Cables and Cords
-CD’s, DVD’s and their Cases
-Ink and Toner Cartridges
I started thinking about all of the items in my home I could place in this recycle bin. I took the above photo as a reminder (and for this blog post), looked through my home and came upon a few items I could ‘donate’ to the recycle bin. I placed the bag of items in my car and a few days later they were living in my local Best Buy’s recycling bin.
I later learned that Best Buy recycles more than just what you can put in the bin. They take back TVs, mobile phones, video games and other electronics. To read more about other items Best Buy recycles, go to their e-cycle page. You’ll be shocked at the variety of items you’ll be able to recycle at their store. There are many good resources for recycling on that page, too.
Time to look through your attic, basement, closets and garage–bring your unwanted electronics to Best Buy for a little e-Spring Cleaning!
