Expanded Recycling Section in Stores

Status: Acknowledged

Best Buy should invest a section of the store to helping recycle or donate old technologies and educating the community on ways to potentially recycle outdated technologies. As climate change becomes more daunting in our near future, I think Best Buy should take action and spearhead recycling efforts within communities. Doing so would increase their brand reputation and possiblty increase their in-store traffic significantly. For example, if someone wants a new tv but still has a tv in their room that they don't know how to get rid of, they can come to Best Buy to recycle it (for a possible discount) and buy a new one in one trip. While it may not be lucrative for Best Buy, this idea can help to establish a stronger community around the Best Buy brand.

Best Buy used to offer free recycling for some time.  However, it turned out to be huge financial and work hours burden.  And took up a lot of space.  

 

They were doing this when CRT TV's were trending out and modern TV's were coming in.

 

It really didn't do much in regards to traffic or sales.  

 

Your local area should have a place for recycling.  Ours does it by the pound.
