Bust Buy Recycles….

Just found out that Best Buy recycles just about everything electronic and computer related!  Just as I am cleaning out my closets of old computers and peripherals.  :-)

Best Buy does not accept alkaline batteries for disposal. Customers should call 1-800-RECYCLING or visit www.1800recycling.com to find alkaline battery recycling centers in their neighborhoods.
