Additional Local Options for Electronics Recycling:
Best Buy Stores:
As part of Best Buy's Electronics Recycling program, residents can recycle many electronic items, including tube TVs up to 32", DVD players, home and car audio, MP3 players, desktop or laptop computers, cell phones, small electrics, fans and vacuums. You can bring in up to three items a day, per household, and there is no cost to the consumer.
Use their haul-away or pickup programs for console TV's of any size or tube TV's and monitors larger than 32" (A fee is applied. Please contact the local store for more information).
In addition, Dell Computer, in partnership with Goodwill Industries, accepts any brand of computer equipment in any condition free of charge, as well just about anything that can be connected to a computer.
