Best Buy Recycles

Best Buy just launched a program that will buy back obsolete technology from customers. By paying between forty and seventy dollars at purchase, Best Buy will later refund you a percentage of the item’s cost based on its age and recycle it. While the goal is to get customers to upgrade their technology faster, the program will definitely help reduce our growing landfill clutter.
