Best Buy TV Recycling Program
Our old projection LCD TV stopped working a while ago. It wasn’t that old, so we looked into getting it fixed, but the repair was going to cost almost as much as buying a new television. We did not want to just throw the old TV in the trash though, so we spent some time looking into local recycling options. Unfortunately, neither our county nor any adjacent ones offered TV recycling.
So, the TV sat in our dining room for a few months and then moved to our bedroom and eventually our garage while we tried to figure out what to do with it. I eventually got sick of it taking up space in our garage and decided to figure out what to do with it. That is when I stumbled upon the Best Buy TV recycling program.
Here’s how it works. You take your old TV into a local Best Buy store, give them your old TV and pay them $10 and they take it to recycle. Then, they immediately give you back a $10 Best Buy gift card, so it really does not cost you anything.
The very next day, after I read about the Best Buy TV recycling program, we loaded our old TV into the car and drove it up to Best Buy. They gave us a dolly to put it on and we wheeled it into the store. Five minutes later, our TV was on its way to being properly recycled and we had a $10 Best Buy gift card.
Not all Best Buy stores participate in the TV recycling program though, so be sure to check out their website to make sure your local one does before you load up your old TV into the car.
