Yay, finally posting the photos from my first Best Buy recycling extravaganza. I dragged Kent with me to the Best Buy in Union City, toting a large bag of random cords and wires I’ve been hoarding (since I’ve moved back from college) and two heavy, old computer towers. For those of you who are curious, this particular Best Buy’s in-store kiosk accepts plastic bags (they have two sections for it), rechargable batteries, and wires, cords, and cables. As for the larger electronics, you gotta take them to the customer service desk where they will process the recyclables. :)
Unfortunately, I need to make another trip to the Best Buy in Milpitas (McCarthy Ranch) because that particular store recycles CDs and CD jewel cases! I’ve also found other things around the house that I’ve been wanting to get rid of but had no idea what to do with… including an old, broken printer and a super old school Sony Walkman! Although now I’m debating if I should just donate it to Goodwill… at least Best Buy guarantees that the products they accept for recycling will be recycled responsibly, whereas I have no idea what Goodwill does with the donations that don’t sell. If you guys have any suggestions or experiences, I’d love to hear them!
