MONTREAL, Feb. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Best Buy, Canada's fastest growing retailer and etailer of consumer electronics, is launching its Electronics Take Back recycling program in Quebec. Beginning March 1, customers in Quebec can responsibly recycle their end-of-life electronics - including TVs, media players, monitors, computers and peripherals - at any local Best Buy store, up to a maximum of two items per day, no matter where they were originally purchased. Customers are asked to drop off their electronics for recycling at the Best Buy customer service desk during business hours.

The fourth province to take part in Best Buy's Electronics Take Back recycling program, Quebec joins BC, Alberta and Ontario - all of which have launched successful electronics take back recycling programs over the past few years. Best Buy has partnered with the Electronic Product Stewardship Canada's (l'Association pour le recyclage des produits électroniques ARPE) Quebec division to operate the environmentally responsible and regulated recycling of the electronics received from customers. All recycling is handled in Canada.

In 2012, together with Future Shop, Best Buy Canada recycled 5.8M lbs. of electronics, 175,000 mobile phones and 45,000 lbs of batteries.

Best Buy is proud to provide a responsible solution to customers looking for solutions to recycle their end-of-life electronics. The Take Back program is a natural extension of the small electronics recycling already available to customers within every store in Canada.
