Best Buy has eliminated its $10 recycling fee for CE items with display screens, making its nationwide in-store electronics recycling program completely free of charge.

The in-store recycling program accepts such items as TV and computer monitors, DVD players, audio and video cables, cell phones, and CRTs up to 32 inches and flat panels up to 60 inches, all at no cost.

Last year Best Buy collected 83 million pounds of electronics and 73 million pounds of appliances, and the company aims to collect 1 billion total pounds of electronics by the end of 2014. The company works only with certified third-party electronics recyclers, all of which carry R2 or eStewards certification.
