Best Buy Launches Electronics Recycling Program in Quebec

Article-Best Buy Launches Electronics Recycling Program in Quebec

Best Buy Canada Ltd. is launching an electronics take-back recycling program in Quebec.

Beginning March 1 Quebec customers can bring back for recycling any end-of-life electronics at any local Best Buy store, the Burnaby, British Columbia-based company said in a news release. Customers can bring a maximum of two items per day, regardless of where they were originally purchased.

Quebec is the fourth Canadian province to take part in Best Buy’s Electronics take-back recycling program, joining Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

Products consumers can return include TVs, media players, monitors, computers and peripherals, the company said.

Best Buy has partnered with the Toronto-based Electronic Product Stewardship Canada's Quebec division to properly recycle electronics from customers.

In 2012, together with Burnaby-based retailer Future Shop, Best Buy Canada recycled 5.8 million pounds of electronics, 175,000 mobile phones and 45,000 pounds of batteries.
