In partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Washington, Best Buy, Richfield, Minn., has eliminated 100,000 pounds of damaged electronics from New Orleans. The electronics retailer funded the removal and recycling of computers, monitors and televisions collected and held in Orleans Parish by the Washington-based U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In addition, the company has donated $5 million in computer equipment to New Orleans and Mississippi schools that were damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Best Buy is removing damaged electronics from New Orleans as part of the EPA’s Plug-In to eCycling program, which promotes safe e-waste recycling initiatives.
