You can now recycle your old electronics at Best Buy, rather than sending them to a landfill by putting them out on the curb. If you are recycling monitors or TVs under 32", they require you to buy $10 worth of stuff at Best Buy (i.e. they charge $10/item, but then turn around and give you a $10 gift card). Check their website for locations and items not accepted.
