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

Published 11/14/2022


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. In addition to our recycling efforts, we’ve also pledged to be carbon-neutral across our business by 2040.

This year, we took steps towards making the recycling process even easier for our customers by adding our Standalone Haul-Away service. At the click of a button, anyone in the U.S. can now request pickup and recycling for old electronics, keeping tech, including appliances, out of landfills and giving it a second life.

What to know before you go

Before you come into your local Best Buy with your electronics, here are a few things you need to know:

  • You can recycle up to three items per household per day.
  • Although we recycle many items for free, some products are recycled for a fee.
  • Your old tech might have value! You can use our Trade-in Calculator to check.
  • We recommend you delete all data in your devices before turning them in to be recycled but know that we also erase all information from devices we receive.
  • We haul away TVs and major appliances from your home for $39.99 when a replacement product is delivered by Geek Squad or Best Buy Home Delivery.
