Reclaim your Closet

By catherine | February 27, 2013

Old computer monitor, check.

2 or 3 old cell phones, check, check.

One upper closet shelf you’d really love to use for a better purpose – check, check, check!

We often keep old computer battery packs, laptops, and various and sundry out of commission electronics because, really, what in the world do we do with them – it seems wasteful and bad for the environment to just throw them away and we can’t donate them because they are broken?

Best Buy to the rescue!  Best Buy will recycle our old electronics. Just walk them into the “info desk” at any Best Buy, and hand over your bag and they take the items away to be recycled properly.  It’s really that simple. One small caveat – if anything has a “face”, like a monitor or laptop, they charge you a range of $10 to $20 to properly dispose of them.  But, they will give you a gift card to use in their store for the same amount.

So, now there is no reason to allow those busted items to take up one ounce of space in your home. Go home and get your bag together today – that upper shelf is calling you.
