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.
