Battery and Electronic Recycling Program

In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we have temporarily suspended our Battery and Electronic Recycling Program. Although this program is important to us and the environment, the health and safety of our team members and customers is the highest priority. Please hold on to your recyclables—we’ll be happy to help you with recycling in the future.


Do you have old electronics or batteries you'd like to get rid of? You can recycle them at Best Buy stores —even if you didn’t buy them from us.

What can I recycle?

We’ve partnered with Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) and Call2Recycle to recycle products ranging from batteries and cellphones to microwaves and home theatre systems. Check out our list below to find out what products are accepted for recycling.

Where can I recycle my stuff?

You can recycle accepted items at our stores across Canada. Just bring them to the customer service desk and put batteries in the Call2Recycle box. We can’t accept items for recycling at our Best Buy Mobile stores or Best Buy Kiosk locations.

What should I do before I recycle my item?

Remove personal information from electronic devices before you recycle them. We’re not liable for any data that’s still on your device, and we can’t recover or return any recycled products.
