Go Green...Spring Clean..Recycle your electronics for free...

Did you know that Best Buy offers a free electronic recycling program at all of it's stores?

I found out just in time. On Saturday, Shakopee is having a community clean-up day, for $25 per car, you can recycle all of your electronics.

But now, I can just drop the stuff off at Best Buy (it's even closer to my house than the drop off site) for FREE! And I get finally get rid of the broken TV that's been sitting in the corner of my bedroom for a couple of months now!

There's definitely some restrictions -- like only two items per day -- but I think it's a great program to help people get rid of their old and broken electronics. That'll give us room to buy some more -- lol.

Maybe if I'm lucky, my husband will read this post and will take the TV and the broken printer that's in Gracie's closet over to Best Buy today while I'm at work....hint. hint. (Feel free to pass this hint along to him if you're reading this...I'm sure he'd love to hear from you!) And an added bonus for my husband if he does it -- it'll cost $10 to recycle the TV, but he'll get a $10 Best Buy gift card in return.

Check out Best Buy's Web site for more details.
