If your house is like mine, you probably have one or two VGA monitors sitting around preventing you from finding whatever it is you’re looking for when you fall over them.
Despite noble attempts, recycling electronics has never been easy, although since Minnesota passed a law requiring it, it’s gotten better.
Today, the concept took a giant step forward when Best Buy announced it will start everyday recycling on February 15. You can take up to two electronic items a day to a store. You’ll pay $10 each, but you’ll get a gift card in return.
