Best Buy is starting new program where customers can mail-in their old electronics to be properly recycled.

Best Buy has just launched a new program that makes it easier for customers to recycle their old electronics. A wide range of electronics are accepted through the new Recycle-by-Mail service at the retailer.

According to Best Buy, the electronics retailer has already recycled 2.7 billion pounds of electronics and appliances to date, but the new program will allow Best Buy to continue this sustainability effort outside of its stores.

Customers will be able to order a prepaid Best Buy Technology Recycling Box and then can ship off their old, unwanted electronics for recycling. Best Buy’s next move will be to give the tech a “second life” or the company will recycle it in an environmentally friendly way.

“We continue to build on our commitment to be there for our customers throughout the entire lifecycle of their products by making recycling simple and convenient,” says Tim Dunn, Best Buy’s head of environmental sustainability. “Sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do and this new service is another step we are taking to protect the planet today and for future generations.”
