If you want to get rid of some old electronics and live in the Midwest, you could schedule a trip to Richfield, MN, this weekend, when Best Buy will hold its seventh annual consumer electronics recycling event on Friday, June 22, and Saturday, June 23, at its corporate campus there.

The event is part of Best Buy’s national effort toward recycling old and unwanted consumer electronics in a safe manner. Since 2001, such events nationwide have collected more than 2,500 tons of e-waste, the company says.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on each day at 7601 Penn Avenue South in Richfield.
Friday, June 22 and Saturday, June 23

The following items will be accepted at this year’s event: televisions, video recorders, computer monitors, CPUs and computer peripherals, scanners, printers, fax machines, inkjet and printer cartridges, stereo equipment, and phones (both landlines and cellular). There is a fee of $10 for computer monitors and televisions up to 27 inches, and a $20 fee for any console or big screen television.

Items that cannot be accepted are major appliances such as refrigerators, microwaves, washing machines, air conditioners and smoke detectors.
